Our Mission

We educate, engage and prepare traditional and post-traditional learners for careers and career-advancement in business through:

  • academic excellence,
  • close faculty-student interaction, and
  • experiential learning,
  • all inspired by the Benedictine Hallmarks

Our Individual and Community Expectations

Along with the Benedictine Hallmarks, we expect integrity, diversity, collaboration, innovation, impact, persistence, improvement, and growth.

Where your career and business needs meet.

Wherever you are in your career journey, we will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in business today and tomorrow. We offer the right educational environment for all types of learners: new students, returning students, working professionals, those seeking masters degrees and business leaders seeking doctoral degrees. Good leadership and management can change the world, and we want you to do just that.


Begin or continue your professional journey with us. Our undergraduate degrees include accounting, business analytics, entrepreneurship, finance, marketing and management. We not only focus on where you are now, but also where your career will go in the future.
