Mendoza College of Business

The Mendoza College of Business offers an academically rigorous business education with a central focus on ethics, values-based decision making and a concern for the common good. Students, who enter the College in their sophomore year, choose from among five majors (ACCT, FIN, MARK, MGT IT, MGT Consulting). In keeping with the Notre Dame tradition, coursework is well-rounded with nonbusiness classes in liberal arts, science, theology and other disciplines. About one-third of the undergrads double major outside of business. International study opportunities in more than 20 countries also are available.

The faculty and staff - without them I would not be in the position I am today, prepared to take the CPA exam with a full-time job already and ready to be a leader in the public accounting field.
