In Dominican’s business programs, you will study with professors who bring their real-world experiences to the classroom as they focus on the skills, knowledge and integrity that define good business leaders.
The Brennan School of Business provides ethics-centered management education for students who are either entering business professions or continuing their professional development.
Our curriculum provides our students with an enduring foundation in business and leadership skills and an understanding of the best in current business practices resonant with the university's core values of Caritas et Veritas.
The business administration major provides knowledge of the functional areas of business and the quantitative tools and economic theory necessary to analyze business problems. Course work provides an understanding of the effect of legal, behavioral and financial considerations in business decision-making and the social and ethical ramifications of those decisions. Instructional emphasis is placed on global business issues, entrepreneurship and emerging business technologies.
In 2014, the Brennan School of Business earned accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) -- the largest and most prestigious accrediting body of business schools. Of the world's more than 13,000 business programs, less than 5 percent have been accredited by AACSB, which conducts a rigorous evaluation of teaching, research, curricula development and student learning.
AACSB accreditation of a school is important to students because it signals a quality learning environment, certified faculty and researchers, and a comprehensive business curriculum that can withstand strict scrutiny. Because of this, graduates of AACSB-accredited schools such as the Brennan School of Business, are more marketable to prospective employers.
The Brennan School of Business has also achieved accreditation for its Master of Business Administration, its Master of Science in Accounting and its undergraduate programs in accounting, business administration and international business from the Accreditation Council for Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), demonstrating that it has met standards of business education that promote teaching excellence.

Students who wish to complete an academic major must be admitted to the Brennan School of Business, but all students are welcome to enroll in accounting, business, international business, and economics courses on an elective basis or to complete an academic minor. However, students are limited to taking a maximum of eight Brennan School of Business courses (in the disciplines of accounting, business administration, and/or economics) without declaring a major within the Brennan School.
