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 BUILDING MOMENTUM

We have designed innovative learning environments, created named faculty positions, and launched new or redesigned programs.  For example, our new MS and Certificate in Supply Chain Management will launch in the Fall of 2018. And Centers of Excellence in entrepreneurship, professional selling and supply chain management will launch this spring.
