Jayakar, alongside the entire business department, helps students recognize what it means to be a steward of God’s resources. Jayakar’s mission is to be a servant in God’s kingdom and promote ethical, spiritual and honorable cultural values in changing demographic institutions and together value students’ gifts and support them to realize their goals in life.
I believe it is a very determined effort yet I feel burdened to serve new generations as they enter a critical and complex period in the global economic setting.
