Strategic Focus

Our strategic areas of focus include four key areas.


We are a community committed to excellence and service to others, and we believe our potential is God-given and our life path follows a calling. The Hankamer School of Business helps students meet their calling by providing relevant, transformational educational programs and professional immersion characterized by a culture of innovation, excellence, Christian values and a global perspective.


All members of the Hankamer community provide principled leadership and service guided by Christian commitment. This is the character we instill in our students, and the commitment that guides our faculty and staff in their work. A central feature of this effort involves the selection and development of individuals whose values and character are consistent with the school and university missions.


The school's culture of innovation is shaped by our faculty, who produce research that illuminates transformative solutions to significant business and societal problems. Our culture also supports students, faculty, and staff through efficient internal processes dedicated to excellence, effective stewardship and nimble service. This climate is the foundation for our work, and the means through which we provide the Baylor experience.


Communication amongst and between our stakeholders is vital to our success and the fulfillment of our mission. Our faith based heritage and commitment to integrity provides the foundation for collaborative and mutually beneficial relationships with our stakeholders.
