Courses are held on Gordon’s quintessential New England campus—just 25 miles north of Boston and three miles from the ocean. The College is strategically located along the “I-95 power corridor,” just a few hours away from New York City, providing students with access to a worldwide network of opportunity and experience.


"This program creates a classic WIN-WIN-WIN opportunity. For the graduates, it is a WIN as they gain skills, insights and wisdom to help launch them into a successful career—but more importantly into a calling as ministers in and to the marketplace. For Gordon, it is a WIN that broadens and deepens our Kingdom impact and our contribution to the common good. And for the financial services industry, it is a WIN that introduces market participants with both practical skills that are highly valued and a biblically shaped ethical compass that is desperately needed.
