Degree Program Offerings

ABOUT THE COLLEGE OF BUSINESS...

We are a top business school and home to the renowned Helzberg School of Management — one of the best business schools in the country. Our degrees are built on three of the most highly marketable skills in today’s workplace — the ability to make sound business and organizational decisions, to lead and positively influence others, as well as the conscience to make the right decisions.

INFLUENCE...

Our Jesuit education seeks to create positive social change through the fields of communication, economics and political science. Influence and persuasion are fundamental to effective leadership in a world where technology is redefining how we communicate. Influential people know how to wield the power of persuasion, using both traditional forms of communication as well as newer digital forms such as influencer marketing on social media.

AND INFORMATION ANALYSIS

The core of information analysis is rooted in data — lots and lots of data. Our students’ study of mathematics and data analytics centers on strong comprehension of computer science, applied mathematics, and analytics and technology. Through rigorous coursework in probability and statistics, modeling, data mining, business analytics, big data analytics and the use of data analysis tools, students will learn not only how to analyze data, but also what questions to ask and how to communicate results.

The Magis Leaders Program (MLP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in and be rewarded for their achievement in transitioning from life as a student to life as a professional. Under the direction of a distinguished executive professional, completion of the MLP requires attendance at MLP seminars focused on key areas of applied personal and professional development. Students in the MLP benefit from a personal mentor throughout the program. Students stay in touch with their mentors long after graduation.
