Dear Prospective Students,

The Gonzaga University School of Business Administration has one very clear and distinct vision: we will be an exemplar of Jesuit business education. We believe that our emphases on academic excellence, active engagement with others, and our Jesuit traditions will prepare you extremely well for whatever your future may hold. We are committed to helping you gain the knowledge, skills and experiences that prepare you for professional and personal success.

We provide an excellent academic experience. Our curriculum, our faculty, and our staff are all first-rate. Our accounting program is nationally renowned and our portfolio of business concentrations offers you a variety of options including the ability to pursue study across multiple disciplines. Our faculty are difference makers; they will positively impact your life. They excel in the areas of teaching, research and networking. We also have a dedicated staff who provide wonderful support to our school and to our faculty. From academic advising to internships to computer labs to business school events our staff provide great service to our students.

We highly value active engagement with others, whether they are on our campus or in our local, regional, national, or international communities. We actively look for opportunities for our students to work with others across campus be they in engineering, arts & sciences or education. Our faculty are involved in their professional associations as well as in the business community. We are consistent participants in the University's outstanding Trek program, we take visits to the headquarters and facilities of numerous organizations, and we are strong supporters of and active participants in the University's study abroad efforts.

Our Jesuit heritage is very important to us. Being part of a Catholic, Jesuit and humanistic university is central to who we are. As you would expect, we stress ethics and social responsibility throughout our curriculum. In the finest Jesuit tradition we also believe in confident, enlightened and innovative action. We place a high value on learning by doing. When you leave us we want you prepared for the challenges ahead.

Please come visit us in the School of Business Administration. Come meet our faculty, sit in on a class, and talk with our staff and students. We would love to show you who we are.
