Students shaking hands

While Benedictine College has a strong emphasis on undergraduate liberal arts education, the College has developed a limited number of graduate programs in accordance with the longstanding tradition of responding to the needs of the times. The MBA is the generally accepted degree for professional managers of business and nonprofit organizations.

Department Overview

The primary objective of the School of Business is to prepare students for successful and rewarding careers in traditional business occupations establishing a strong foundation for management and executive roles and responsibilities. The School of Business offers five degrees (all Bachelor of Arts): accounting, finance, international business, management, and marketing. These 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.
