SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

School of Business
Students huddle in the main lobby and study area of the Swan Business Center on campus.

St. Bonaventure University’s School of Business has taken its rightful place as one of the premier business schools in the world.

NEW AACSB LogoWe are one of the smallest institutions accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Accredited since 2004, we are 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, as well as the Franciscan values of contemplation, love, respect, joy, peace and compassion that uniquely link 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 (including 4+1 Accounting BBA and MBA in Professional Accountancy program) 
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Management
  • MBA, with full-time, part-time and completely online options.

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

Pacioli Scholars Program

The Pacioli Scholars Program is a competitive program that 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.

    Associate Professor of Marketing, School of Business
    Dr. William Magnus Northington, along with co-authors Dr. Stephanie Gilson (UT-Chattanooga) and Dr. Sharon Beatty, Emeritus (University of Alabama), recently had their manuscript titled "Shopper Deal Seeking Across Channels: An Updated View" accepted for publication at the Journal of Marketing Theory and Practice. The abstract reads, "Today’s shoppers have a wide-range of shopping outlets available, including in-store, online, and mobile channels and the availability of deals and discounts across these channels is changing rapidly. Unfortunately, traditional research in consumer deal seeking focuses mostly on in-store deal behaviors despite the dramatically evolving retail landscape. In this paper, an updated deal-seeking propensity (DSP) scale is developed and four dimensions of deal-seeking propensity are identified. This DSP scale is used to segment shoppers based on their deal-seeking behaviors, with four distinct segments of shoppers identified. The theoretical and managerial contributions of these findings are further discussed in the manuscript."
