Where Academic Training Meets Practical Experience
Essential to our mission at the Leavey School of Business is the belief that every endeavor, from nonprofit work and fine art to technology, law, and everything in between, eventually demands a sense of business to find success. In short, everyone ends up in business.
No matter a student's professional goals or intended area of focus, there is reason to explore the principles of ethical leadership and innovative problem solving that drive competitive and conscientious business practices.
We invite you to take this journey within an intimate, vibrant, and dynamic learning environment, where faculty do more than teach—they form meaningful relationships with you, mentor you, challenge you to do, and thereby help you carve a unique path that can lead to your success.
