What Can I Do With This Major?

SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

Our state-of-the-art William E. & Ann L. Swan Business Center opened in 2013.


St. Bonaventure University’s School of Business has taken its rightful place as one of the premier business schools in the world. We are one of the smallest institutions accredited by the Association forthe Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

  • AACSB accredited since 2004
  • One of only 5% of business schools worldwide to hold this accreditation
And we are proud to declare these “bragging rights.”   We have the best of both worlds: a quality business school within the personalized, small school environment that has always characterized St. Bonaventure. We incorporate service learning into the curriculum, which uniquely links our Franciscan mission to the academic core of the School of Business.

Majors & Minors of Distinction

Since its inception, St. Bonaventure’s School of Business has maintained a strong core of academic programs that provide opportunities for a variety of career paths:
  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Management
  • MBA (full time, part time and 5-year option)

In addition, we offer students the opportunity to minor in eight areas, including Sports Management and International Business.

More Extraordinary Opportunities

The future is exciting and offers the following niche programs:

  • MBA International Business Program in China
  • Family Business Minor
  • Business Honors Program
  • Coursework in Entrepreneurship

Pacioli Scholars Program

This competitive program recognizes exceptional students who have a unique commitment to community service, which is a benchmark of a Bonaventure education.

Named after Luca Pacioli, a 15th century Franciscan friar who is known as the Father of Accounting and who believed that you could be a successful businessperson and a good person, the program provides a monetary stipend and additional opportunities in and and out of the classroom to prepare students for leadership positions.
