"The Business program at Benedictine University has endless amounts of career opportunities available for students. Between the job fairs, the internships and our Career Center, BenU has gone above and beyond to help me get a job when I graduated. Not to mention the amazing faculty, who constantly provide us with real-life experiences inside the classroom to help us prepare for situations that will occur in the real world. I still stay in touch with several of my professors. The small class size was extremely beneficial for me in the learning process. I really can’t thank the Benedictine Mesa faculty, staff and coaches for providing me with a great college experience.” 

Hands-on Learning

Our faculty provide students with hands-on experience in the classroom every day. The methodology uses trained facilitation, along with communication and problem solving, where participants are guided through a series of questions, probing deeper into the subject than what they would do through lecture or seminar.

A Variety of Concentrations

Benedictine University offers three concentrations within the business department: Managing Human Resources, Operations Management, or Personal Financial Planning.

Senior Capstone

Your time at BenUwill culminate with a senior capstone course, giving you the opportunity to create, develop and design your own business plan and everything that comes along with it.
