Strategic Plan

Preparing for tomorrow

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.
