About the Edwards School of Business
While over the years the name of business programming has changed what has not changed is a total commitment to an excellent educational experience for students. Over the past nearly 100 years as we have grown from a small program linked to the professional accounting community to a comprehensive Business School we listened to you! You told us that a business education must have deep functional roots in core disciplines of accounting and finance, marketing and management, human resources and strategy. But you also told us that these deep functional roots must be enhanced with integrated decision-making skills. Finally, you told us to remember that effective decision making requires key professional competencies of communications and leadership within a framework of ethics and social responsibility. You will find these characteristics embedded in all of our programs.
