We combine a strong liberal arts education with excellent concentrations in accounting, finance, management and marketing. That means we help you think globally by looking at issues that go beyond typical business principles.
What are the core values businesses should be concerned with in today’s world? How does a company balance its responsibilities to shareholders, to society, to the environment? How can a business be equally welcoming to workers of all backgrounds, ages and capabilities? You’ll explore those issues and more in our program.
At Fontbonne, our classes are challenging and stimulating. Course work involves case studies and real world, up-to-date analysis of business issues. With a small student-to-teacher ratio, there’s plenty of time for questions and interaction. Our faculty has the experience and expertise to offer excellent instruction in a highly supportive environment. You’re encouraged to seek out your professors to discuss course work, career aspirations or guidance.
Our business department will also help you establish a practicum or internship where you can apply classroom knowledge in professional settings, make professional contacts and gain valuable work experience. Companies and organizations with whom students have completed internships include Best Buy, the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, Boeing, U.S. Bancorp, Anheuser-Busch, Bogey Hill Country Club, Walt Disney World, Merrill Lynch, Maritz and Northwestern Mutual Financial Network.
