The Providence College School of Business is on the rise, with visionary new leadership, robust student interest indicated by applications and enrollment, an influx of dynamic new faculty members, and great anticipation for a new facility, which is now within sight. And we’re not the only ones who have noticed.


acsbacreditedAACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, affirmed the PCSB’s rising level of distinction and quality when it awarded accreditation in 2012. Only 30 percent of U.S. business schools, and 5 percent worldwide, achieve this prestigious designation. It places the PC undergraduate and graduate programs among the best, and helps position students and graduates for even greater success in the future.


PCSB shot up 34 spots to No. 75 on Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2014 list of the top undergraduate business programs. PCSB had the sharpest rise of any school on the ranking this year, thanks to an improved employer survey score, according to the magazine.


Plans for a new PCSB home, in a renovated Dore Hall, are at an advanced stage. With continued fundraising success, including a naming gift for the renovated building, construction could begin in 2015. Many current and future students will have the opportunity to learn and grow in a state-of-the-art facility where every square foot is designed intentionally to foster engaged, values-based learning that will lead students to a lifetime of success in business and in life.
