One reason is that as a colleged accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), we are committed to the highest standards associated with professional business education. And while that is compelling, it does not fully address what distinguishes a Le Moyne education from others. As a Jesuit college, we are deeply committed to the Jesuit ideals of intellectual rigor, cura personalis (care of the whole person), and service to and for others. Le Moyne is a community of scholars, educators and leaders bound by a common vision of excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, research, and experiential learning.
More than ever, business educators must prepare a new generation of innovative, globally aware leaders. Toward this end, we strive to imbue our students with the ability to understand, discern, and lead as they address the most pressing issues of our times. No matter the business discipline, our graduates are equipped to respond to the needs of a changing world – through their classroom experience, collaborative learning venues with for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, and leadership experiences at home and abroad. “Educating the whole person” is both an end in itself and a means to becoming the leaders of the future. Le Moyne College graduates look at the world through a distinct prism, reflect on their opportunities in ways consistent with our Jesuit heritage, and become dynamic forces for the social and organizationa lchange so urgently needed.
With our outstanding foundation of teaching, scholarship and service, we are poised for extraordinary advances in visibility and impact on the regional, national and global stages. Our hope is that, as a Le Moyne business student, you will measure success by experiences that change your life – that “aha moment” delivered by an inspired professor, a study abroad experience that alters your world view, or an internship that crystallizes a career path.
We are committed to helping you to define your own path to success. We are committed to 21st Century leadership.
