The mission of the St. Gregory’s University Department of Business is to prepare and encourage value-centered professionals to be committed to an entrepreneurial spirit, ethical focus and global orientation. We do this by combining extensive, reality-based experiences with specialized academic courses.
As economies change throughout the globe, students can take advantage of curricula designed and complemented by business professionals from manufacturing, merchandising and service firms, as well as non-profit organizations. The instruction in ethical business decisions and practices we provide will train students to not only look at the bottom line, but also to understand how each and every decision they make affects the world in which they live.
Business students can collaborate with Students in Free Enterprise (S.I.F.E.), an international organization mixing students with leaders of Fortune 500 firms. They can also combine business with subjects such as art, science or theology for a bachelor’s degree that will enhance their future opportunities. Upon graduation, our students become part of an alumni network that is working for major firms both in the United States and around the globe.
Small class sizes allow you to have an understanding of the structures and actual conditions of business in an academic environment. Our outstanding faculty develops the essential one-on-one interaction with each student that helps future business leaders enhance their public speaking abilities and critical management skills. Entrepreneurial ideas are discussed and developed into business applications that encourage a thorough understanding of the sound business and monetary policies that create successful organizations.
Students are assisted in finding paid internships during their junior and senior years to complement their academic education and assist with the cost of college. The St. Gregory’s internship program allows students to encounter a wide range of skills and events. For example, business students can prepare to work for national corporations such as Eaton or Exxon/Mobil Chemical. They can also learn first-hand about tribal administration with the Citizen Potawatomi Nation.
