The Spalding University School of Business is committed to preparing our students to be leaders who will make an impact in the business and professional world. Within our diverse community of learners, we provide a supportive and flexible learning environment where professional relationships and personal connections are fostered.
There is naturally a strong link between Spalding’s commitment to compassion, values, and meeting the needs of the times and the changes occurring in the business environment. Newer generations, especially Gen Z, expect our current leaders to lead differently which also means they expect to be prepared to lead differently. Through our curriculum, we can prepare future and current business leaders to think and lead differently. As a freshman, you will take the course BA 205: People, Planet, and Profit. The triple bottom line concept will also be embedded throughout the curriculum in already established classes.
