In 2012, I was a candidate for a B.A. in Fashion Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. However, following the advice of a professor (a fashion designer herself), I decided that a business degree would best prepare me to own a fashion company.
While searching for business schools in NYC, I found King’s through a Twitter post and was intrigued that the King’s mission was not to shelter Christians from the world, but to train them to lead “strategic institutions.” The fashion industry is worth over $300 billion in the U.S market alone, with the major decision makers residing in Manhattan, and I was confident that this was the institution I wanted to have a part in transforming. I came to King’s for a tour and saw that the people were as passionate in person as they claimed to be on the website. Excellence is attractive, and at King’s, it was evident immediately.
I am currently a junior in the Business program. While the business program teaches me the skills I will need to operate a fashion business, my core classes in philosophy and politics help me to logically answer the “why” behind the “what.” In my first business course at King’s, I expected to learn about public speaking in a business environment. I not only learned those skills, but I was also challenged in my faith when my business professor prayed at the beginning of every class. This simple, yet rare, practice in a college setting, raised the academic standard and integrity of the entire class because it reminded us why we chose King’s over other colleges—to lead nations to Christ through business.
I chose King’s because of the mission statement and the business program. I have stayed because of the people. My classmates and professors sharpen and challenge me to give my best effort in the classroom, in my relationships, and in business. I am confident that King’s is delivering on its mission to train students to boldly reshape institutions for Christ and I am excited to use the skills I have learned at King’s in the fashion industry.
