For more than 100 years, Detroit Mercy’s College of Business Administration has prepared diverse students to serve business organizations and society with competence, compassion, and conscience. Rooted in the Jesuit and Mercy traditions, the College champions academic excellence and good character by encouraging intellectual, spiritual, ethical, and social growth. Our degree programs have been accredited since 1949 by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). College Choice ranks us the best private business school in Michigan, and U.S. News & World Report has ranked our undergraduate and graduate Management programs among the top 20 in the entire nation. Our pass rate among first-time candidates on the Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam is the 19th highest in the country for programs of our size. Located in the resurgent City of Detroit, the College is proud to be an integral part of Detroit’s renaissance. All of our students perform service-learning, using the skills developed in the classroom to benefit the community, by providing services such as free income-tax assistance and financial literacy lessons. And our Center for Social Entrepreneurship develops business skills among entrepreneurs whose new ventures are designed to have a positive impact on society. Our students benefit from access to internships and employment opportunities at many major corporations headquartered in metropolitan Detroit, and our alumni and alumnae hold executive positions with organizations throughout the country. Each year, a number of those distinguished graduates serve as guest lecturers and mentors for students, providing yet another entrée to professional careers.
