Provide Transformative Education in a Spiritan Tradition…

We develop ethical business professionals who:

  • Understand the global marketplace
  • Serve others by leading with integrity to transform their communities, organizations, and society

We accomplish this by:

Engaging students, alumni, and business partners with passionate faculty members who create impactful scholarship and innovative educational experiences that connect theory to practice.


Our culture of excellence and innovation is TRANSCENDING BOUNDARIES

Our distinctive academic programs, world-class facilities, impactful faculty scholarship, alumni engagement, and community partnerships are transcending boundaries, positioning the School as a global leader in business education.  For example, we launched centers of excellence in Entrepreneurship, Professional Selling and Supply Chain Management.  And our new MS and Certificate in Analytics and Information Management will launch in Fall of 2019. 

But the best is yet to come! Planned for May 2019, Rockwell renovations to the sixth floor and pedestrian bridge to the bluff will begin— arguably, the single most impactful renovation project since Rockwell Hall was built in 1958.  Once complete, the sixth floor will house new institutes in Business Ethics, Investment Management and Sustainable Business Innovation, plus a small café.

Your support of our business students is vital to their success and the School’s future. Thanks to your generosity, we can:
