Undergraduate Studies

Overview

Current Undergraduate Student Site

The Mendoza College of Business Undergraduate Studies program provides students with the opportunity to gain an excellent business education built on the traditions of high achievement and values that form the foundation of the University of Notre Dame.

Founded in 1921, the College has faithfully followed the charge of its founding dean, John Cardinal O’Hara, CSC. “The primary function of commerce is service to mankind.” Mendoza College emphasizes innovative coursework, engaged faculty teaching in small-class settings, experiential learning opportunities and exposure to the top global business leaders. Students gain the vision to think about the big picture, and the knowledge and tools to answer the big questions – from how to choose a career path, to how business can change society for the better.

To ensure a holistic experience, the undergraduate curriculum is integrated with a rich variety of classes in liberal arts, science, theology and other programs across the University. Students also may choose to expand their horizons by spending a semester studying abroad in one of more than 40 locations.

A business degree from the University of Notre Dame means far more than understanding spreadsheets or tax codes. It’s about developing your whole self – your faith, your values, your intellect, your passions. It’s about learning through doing, dreaming the big dreams, and becoming part of Notre Dame – a family committed to your success, a community dedicated to changing the world.
