Professor Antiel is very interested in developing future leaders by introducing questionable ethical business practices and challenging students on how should Christians act in today’s business world. Currently, the dominant thought in business, is that if it is legal then it must be accepted. However, in a post modernism world, Christian leaders are needed to influence and change the culture and carefully chart alternative courses to create a form of “faithful presence” that affect business cultures and society.
