    Division of Business Mission Statement:
    Believing in the power of truth, the division is committed to developing students who are grounded in the liberal arts and Dominican traditions. Upon graduation, the students will have the ability to think critically, logically, and ethically while applying the specialized business knowledge and skills mastered here to respond effectively to the rapidly evolving demands of our communities and organizations in the global economy.
