Providence College School of Business

Providence College School of Business

We’re shaping a different kind of business education.

As the only U.S. college founded and administered by Dominican friars, we understand the need for meaning, connection, and purpose in business and life.

The future of business requires people with the skills to find common ground, thoughtfully analyze options, and contribute ethically to solutions together.
We teach the power of “we” rather than “me.”

With a dynamic group of energized faculty and a rigorous curriculum, we’re building the business school of the future. Students don’t just learn the foundations of business — they learn a versatile, collaborative, problem-solving approach that makes them indispensable to employers and personally fulfilled.

We’re teaching the power of “we” rather than “me.”
