Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business Mission Statement

The Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business, proudly integrated in a Catholic University, fosters the divine calling of business professionals who consider the dignity of the human person, who apply the highest standards of personal integrity, and who serve the common good.

In this context, the Bolte School builds innovative education programs, advances knowledge through quality scholarship, promotes responsible business practices, and develops future leaders who are ethical decision-makers and effective problem-solvers.

Ultimately, the Bolte School seeks to positively influence global communities by considering people as well as profits, morality as well as market-share, and service as well as self.

What does this mean for you?

Students of the Bolte School receive world-class professional training in the context of a Catholic, liberal arts core Veritas program. The Bolte School's faculty continually enhances curriculum to ensure that it is receptive to change, that it is consistent with the latest industry trends, that it takes into account the demands of the marketplace, and that it embraces the Catholic liberal arts intellectual tradition.

To achieve this mission and to help our graduates translate their education into professional and civic success, the faculty and staff uphold and promote the following core values:

Faith: to be mindful of Catholic values and to affirm the moral standards central to maintaining the dignity of each person. To pursue this core value, the faculty accepts the responsibility of role models who live their beliefs by acting in an ethical manner with our students, colleagues, and the broader community.

Discovery: to encourage inquiry, expression, critical analysis, and problem solving skills. To pursue this core value, our academically-qualified and professionally-active faculty develop innovative academic programs that emphasize students’ analytical skills and that promote success in today’s global business environment.

Leadership: to cultivate educated leaders who are concerned with the ethics, justice, and social responsibility of their individual and organizational actions. To pursue this core value, the faculty - through teaching, advising, and research - promote high standards of quality and excellence in our academic programs.

Community: to respect others and to be responsible as individuals and as members of a diverse learning community. To pursue this core value, the faculty creates a community of inquisitive learners who engage in free expression and dialogue and who adhere to professional and community standards.
