Our rigorous undergraduate business education gives graduates a true edge among their peers. With small class sizes, we foster engagement and close personal interaction — yet we also provide unique experiential learning opportunities to give you valuable real world experience.
You’ll gain the tools to become a flexible and creative thinker, an effective leader, a hands-on decision-maker and an ethical citizen.
Our students undertake projects in teams and have the opportunity to collaborate with outside practitioners to solve actual business problems. As you gain knowledge and learn communication and critical thinking skills, you also learn to manage change, motivate others, and assume responsibility. And through internships, co-ops, and study abroad, you experience firsthand how businesses operate on the street.
True to our Augustinian tradition, the business faculty encourage students to be passionate about learning and respectful of diverse views. As a whole, the well-rounded education we impart prepares our graduates to hit the ground running and pursue successful careers.
