Introduction

The School is committed to the highest quality teaching for its Undergraduate, Graduate, and School of Continuing Education (SCE) business students.

The School of Business at Providence College strives to create a learning environment consistent with the mission of the College, grounded in a strong liberal arts education and the Judeo-Christian values as articulated in the Dominican tradition. Built on sound ethical standards, this environment cultivates the personal, civic, and professional development of its students and faculty through close interaction, excellent pedagogy and high-quality scholarship.

We provide an education that prepares students to be life-long learners, ethical professionals and effective agents of change. Our programs of study develop well-rounded, socially responsible individuals with an appreciation for the challenges and opportunities of diversity and globalization. The curriculum aims to provide students with competencies in their chosen fields of study as well as in such core areas as critical thinking, leadership, teamwork, communication, and information technology.

Our faculty are fully committed to excellence in teaching and research, as is the School in supporting that enterprise. We actively encourage those intellectual and professional contributions that would vitalize teaching and service.
