School of Business

Gone are the days when business professionals worked in silos, disconnected from one another and other departments. Today’s businesses are collaborative and in need of graduates who are comfortable working in teams and across disciplines. They need graduates with a firm grasp of business basics who also have critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.

You’ll get all of that at St. Thomas Aquinas College's School of Business. And more.

Here, ethics, communication, experiential learning, and the opportunity to "study beyond" form the cornerstone of our internationally accredited School of Business. At STAC, you’ll get a broad-based liberal arts education plus professional skills in accounting, finance, management, marketing, or sport management. And you’ll be prepared for graduate school, corporate employment and everywhere in between.
