Why Us

We are not an educational factory mass-producing business school grads for cookie-cutter jobs. We are teachers, scholars, and mentors steeped in the Catholic Lasallian tradition of learning that is rigorous, experiential, ethical, and inclusive.

Where individuals, equipped with the will to learn, are prepared for a successful future of informed service and prepared to lead with a global perspective.

As an AACSB-accredited business school, we are held to high standards, and, as a result, produce graduates who are considered to be more highly skilled and desirable to employers.

We are living in an age where the value of a degree is measured by the likelihood of future earnings. But what marks our graduates is the belief that while their degree is a means to an end, their Lasallian Business education is a means to a beginning.
