Graziadio School Mission
To develop values-centered leaders and advance responsible business practice through education that is entrepreneurial in spirit, ethical in focus and global in orientation.
As a professional school growing out of the tradition of a Christian University, we seek to impact positively both society at large, and the organizations and communities in which our students and graduates are members. Therefore, we affirm a higher purpose for business practice than the exclusive pursuit of shareholder wealth. We believe that successful management seeks collective good along with individual profit and is anchored in core values such as integrity, stewardship, courage, and compassion.
