School of Business
The primary objective of the School of Business is to prepare students for successful and rewarding careers in traditional business occupations. The core business curriculum focuses on the four main functional areas of a business enterprise (accounting, finance, management, and marketing), important supporting competencies (quantitative methods, statistical analysis, economics, law, and executive communications), and character formation (ethics). The business degree programs reflect a belief that professionals require technical and leadership skills that are balanced with the perspective, critical thinking, and communication skills produced by a combined business and liberal arts education.
- The ability to Communicate with excellence both verbally and in writing
- A thorough and complete Competency that will add value to an enterprise
- The necessary Character to lead other competent people upon promotion
- A Compassionate worldview as a top executive evidencing the belief that the effort is bigger than any one person, including themselves
MAJORS AND MINORS
Our department offers five Bachelor of Arts degrees: Accounting, Finance, International Business, Management, and Marketing. We also offer minors in Accounting, Business, Finance, and Entrepreneurship.
The Benedictine College School of Business is committed to seeing students through to gainful employment in their chosen field of study. As a faculty not only academically qualified, but professionally qualified, we provide real world insight into a variety of careers, the problems students will face in those careers, and what business practices work best. One of the ways we accomplish this is through significant and rigorous experiential learning activities or internships required for graduation. We work regularly with the Career Center to give the students the tools they need to compete against other candidates and excel in their chosen field of study.
