We seek excellence in business education that offers breadth in terms of broad-based coverage of business concepts and skills, depth through focus on specific industries and professions, and wholeness via education of men and women in service of others in accordance with the Ignatian tradition.
The mission of the Haub School of Business is to support the aspirations of our students to master the fundamental principles and practices of business in a diverse, ethical and globally-aware context. All degree programs stress the development of the knowledge, skills, abilities and values that prepare our graduates to assume leadership roles in organizations of all sizes and types. Programs are offered at the bachelor’s, master’s and executive master’s levels. In addition, we offer selected associate degree and certificate programs. The HSB is committed to the ideals and philosophies of Jesuit education, including emphases on faith, justice, and social responsibility, with a strong commitment to lifelong learning.
- Our undergraduate students experience an extensive liberal arts and science core that develops the whole person in a traditional campus setting. At the graduate and executive education levels, our programs, locations and scheduling are designed to accommodate the part-time student. We are dedicated to producing business professionals who have the capacity for integrated problem-solving and who recognize the necessity for lifelong learning in order to adapt to changing issues and events.
- The primary commitment of the HSB faculty is to help students learn. To this end, every faculty member is expected to contribute to the academic environment through effective teaching, active student advising, service to the institution and discipline, and intellectual contributions that are commensurate with and contribute to the faculty member’s teaching responsibilities.
- Faculty intellectual contributions will be a mix of basic research, applied research and instructional development, which will be pursued on a regular basis and be made available for public scrutiny by academic peers and/or professionals. Given the HSB’s emphases on creating a strong academic environment for student learning and our mix of undergraduate programs and applied master’s programs, the majority of faculty intellectual contributions will be in the form of applied research and instructional development.
The objective of the undergraduate degree program in business is to develop competent and socially-aware decision makers who have a broad perspective of economic and organizational problems, a global outlook, and an understanding of the regional economy.
