Welcome! Thank you for visiting our website. As you explore these pages, I hope you will get a feel for the special environment offered by the College of Business and Leadership. But don’t stop at these pages. Come for a visit! We would love to show you around our beautiful campus. If you visit, please feel free to stop by my office—my door is almost always open.
This year, roughly 550 students are enrolled in the College of Business and Leadership. Over 400 students are studying one of the eight undergraduate majors that we offer, and about 140 students are enrolled in our Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Organizational Leadership (MOL) programs. Students have the option of moving right from our undergraduate program into our full-time MBA program and completing both degrees in five years. Through career services, internships, international immersion experiences and mentoring, we are connecting students to their futures.
We have a terrific and dedicated faculty whose first and most heartfelt desire is to see our students succeed. Our faculty members have excellent academic credentials, and almost all have had significant experience in industry and/or the nonprofit sectors. Business leadership, for our faculty, is a noble profession in which success and integrity cannot be separated.
During the past 30 years, over 1700 students have graduated from our programs and have moved into careers in the business and nonprofit sectors. We have high hopes for our alumni, and we strive to serve as a point of connection for those who are seeking a new generation of business and nonprofit leader:
We hire faculty who believe this. We attract partners in the business and nonprofit communities who support this. We recruit students who want this. It is the essence of our Franciscan heritage and the core of our academic community.
We are impressed by the hard work, determination, and commitment we see in the current generation of students —a generation that expects more from themselves, from life, from business, and from the world. Students like it here at Lourdes. They appreciate the values-based atmosphere, and they enjoy the caring environment provided by faculty, staff, and administration. They find the physical environment to be peaceful—a good place to study and grow.
As the world moves into an increasingly complex future, we will continue to be a point of connection for this new generation of business leaders—innovative leaders prepared to take our world from where it is...to where it needs to be.
