Why the Carroll School?

Challenging business courses combine with experiential learning and a multidisciplinary approach. Exceptional faculty lead innovative research. A culture of cooperation cultivates and challenges future leaders to fulfill their potential. Everything we do at the Carroll School prepares students to thrive in an increasingly complex business world.

Our students acquire both the vision and skills to inspire, motivate, and improve organizations and the communities that support them.

 

Academic Excellence

At the core of our student experience is a rigorous curriculum that distinctively blends innovative, challenging business courses with insights from other fields of knowledge and experience. The Carroll School is consistently ranked among the top undergraduate business schools in the country—including #3 by Bloomberg Businessweek.

World-Renowned Faculty

As teachers and scholars, Carroll School faculty members improve business practice, publish in top journals, and prepare students to flourish in their careers. Our faculty rank 17th internationally for research quality and productivity (Financial Times). Bloomberg Businessweek gave them an A+ in the classroom. This combination—the highest level teaching and research—is rarely achieved in the world of management education.

Preparation for Career Success

Eight academic centers, dedicated career services, personalized advising, resume workshops, and more give Carroll School students full access to a range of resources. The results show: 83% of the undergraduate Class of 2017 who sought employment were hired within three months of graduation, earning a median starting salary of $62,250.

A Well-Rounded Education

As part of a Jesuit Catholic university, we’re committed to the formation of the whole person—men and women with interests that extend beyond business and who continuously reflect on who they are, who they want to be, and how they want to use their talents to address the world’s needs.

Liberal Arts Advantage

We want to broaden rather than narrow the way management students think, and that’s why we favor a liberal arts approach that draws on ideas and insights from multiple disciplines. Intellectual inquiry, critical thinking, effective communication, cultural competence—these are skills and characteristics required to thrive in the 21st century. And they’re what employers increasingly seek.
