Visionary, values-based leaders understand more than the theory of business. They know how to navigate today’s globalized business environment. They fearlessly promote practices that are both effective and ethical. They know how good management and bold thinking can change the world, and they’re determined to make it happen.

The Valparaiso College of Business is home to leaders like this—and you could be one of them. Learn more about our business college programs, students, and alumni.

Why The College Of Business?

“At Valpo, business education goes beyond maximizing profit and shareholder value. For us, business is about making a difference; having a purpose greater than yourself. If you address what matters first—socially, environmentally, and financially responsible business practices—profit will follow. Our students are held to a higher standard and we expect them to demonstrate character and make a positive impact regardless of where their journey takes them—to do well by doing good.”
       – Niclas Erhardt, Dean

Learn By Doing

Learning-by-doing is a fundamental part of our program, including external projects and service opportunities with local businesses. Each Valpo business student must complete at least one internship or co-op before graduating. These experiences provide real-world applications to complement the classroom curriculum. Through an internship, you can engage with your field and expand your professional network. Many students have also received job offers from employers where they have interned.

Our students intern with exceptional organizations in the United States and around the world.
