The Purpose of Business

Standard

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.

  1. Business exists to create opportunities for individuals to express aspect of their God-given identity in meaningful and creative work.
  2. Business exists in order to produce goods and services that would enable the community to flourish.
