What is the purpose of Business?
In a conference presentation Jeff Van Duzer, former Dean of the Seattle Pacific University (SPU) School of Business and Economics, identified a twofold purpose for business. He described it as God’s Mission Statement for Business in general.
- Business exists to create opportunities for individuals to express aspect of their God-given identity in meaningful and creative work.
- Business exists in order to produce goods and services that would enable the community to flourish.
