La Salle University has been educating business professionals since the day it opened its doors in 1863. At La Salle’s first official graduation on June 1, 1871, 12 students received diplomas, 4 of whom became La Salle’s first business alumni.
The continued support and generosity of our alumni, friends, and corporate partners has helped to make the School of Business what it is today. Over the years, they have supported our departments – Accounting, Finance, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, and M.B.A. While the School of Business continues to advance and grow, outcomes research of our alumni continues to present high marks in the areas of preparation of students for life after college.
One of the ongoing strategies of the business school has been a strategy of partnering with our key stakeholders – the corporate and nonprofit community, alumni, high schools, and our peer schools worldwide. The net effect of this has been a vibrant external face for the business school. For the past five years, well over 200 alumni of La Salle have actively participated in the education of our students through our Executive on Campus and Banker’s Day programs. La Salle University and Johnson & Johnson have a unique partnership whereby Johnson & Johnson has a key role in our required freshman course. Today, well over 1,300 alumni per year participate in events run by the School of Business.
Thank you faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends for all that you’ve helped us accomplish.
