Founded in 1941, the School of Business at St. Bonaventure is an important part of a comprehensive liberal arts education at a Catholic university. Guided by our Franciscan heritage, we educate our students to meet the challenges of a dynamic global business environment. We are committed to achieving a level of undisputed and highly visible excellence, and we took another giant step in that direction in the fall of 2013 when we moved into our new home and the latest addition to our beautiful campus in Western New York's scenic Southern Tier, the William E. and Ann L. Swan Business Center. This new, state-of-the-art facility provides the tools and professional setting for engaging our students with a curriculum that emphasizes the development of leadership, management, problem solving, and ethical decision-making. We provide abundant opportunities for interaction among all members of the university community, as well as alumni and business professionals. We strive to bring out the best in every individual, and to prepare our students for the challenges they will face in their professional careers as well as in their personal lives. Most majors are required, and all are encouraged, to complete an internship.
