The mission of the W. Fielding Rubel School of Business is to provide student-centered quality education in the Catholic liberal arts tradition enriched by diverse intellectual perspectives to serve society with purpose, insight, and compassion consistent with the mission of Bellarmine University. Bellarmine University offers our business students a unique educational experience: a broad-based liberal arts education supplemented by top-notch business preparation. This difference is viewed quite favorably by employers, who say they like our graduates because of their writing and critical thinking skills. The School of Business also is noted for rapidly incorporating innovations and business trends into the curriculum. For example, many employers today are encouraging their workers to earn MBA degrees; therefore, Bellarmine has introduced several programs that take entering freshmen to their MBA degrees in just five (or five and a half) years. Another important aspect to a business education at Bellarmine is the requirement of an internship and/or an international experience. This guarantees that students will gain practical experience while still a student, which makes them much more marketable upon graduation.
