Study of faith-based credit unions

Toews completes doctor of business administration degree

Congratulations to Bruce Toews, associate professor of business, who recently completed a doctor of business administration (DBA) degree with a concentration in finance from Walden University.

Toews successfully defended his dissertation on the question of whether the religious culture of faith-based credit unions influenced their financial results. “I found some significant differences at faith-based credit unions, which indicated that religion may indeed affect financial performance and risk tolerance,” said Toews.

While working on his doctorate, Toews taught full time at WWU and attended residencies in the summers. He has taught in the WWU School of Business since 1994.
