Good Business Begins With Good Decisions. Like This One.
Fairfield University’s Charles F. Dolan School of Business boasts experienced faculty who teach students the fundamentals, ethics, and new developments in business on a local and global scale. Using an engaging, interpersonal approach, you will participate in group problem solving, casework, and computer simulations, providing you a strong foundation on which to build a successful business career. Most importantly, your study of business will reflect the 500-year-old Jesuit tradition of academic rigor and personal reflection, which will in turn provide an understanding of the larger ethical, moral, and global context of your life and your work.
