Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Business at St. Ambrose University!

Thinking about a business degree? Not sure if it's "for me," or wondering whether it's "really worth it?"

An excellent case can be made for an undergraduate degree in the field of business; few degrees can promise the versatility, high degree of recognition among employers, and frankly, the speed of return on your investment! For some good insights into "why business," take a peek here.

Why consider the College of Business at St. Ambrose University? The College was founded in 1882 on the twin pillars of seminary and commerce – we count more than 12,000 living alumni as graduates of the College – including many thousands who achieved advance degrees in our Master's or Doctoral programs. We take great pride in delivery of programs of the highest quality and currency in the most personal environment possible. Here, we get to know you and provide you a window into a leadership role throughout your career.

We focus on your experience. Internships, capstone projects, case studies, and regular interaction with practicing executives are all integral to your development. You'll find all of these here, in our College.

I urge you to take the next step – schedule an appointment for an on-campus visit to talk with one of our counselors, or better yet: we'll arrange a personal appointment for you with a faculty member. Learn first-hand why and how the St. Ambrose University College of Business should be where you start the adventure of a lifetime.

Warmest regards,

William C. Lesch, PhD
Professor & Dean
