More than business. 
Business on purpose.

Knowledge alone won’t change the world. For that you need something more. Discover it at Gies College of Business. 

At Gies, everything we do is designed to help you connect the dots between your education and a purposeful future. Our programs encourage big thinking and big ideas. Our faculty and staff guide you to think beyond the possible. Your fellow students challenge your assumptions and help you invent new ways to make a difference. 

Gies provides the environment and resources that foster meaningful actions, empower you to make your mark, and put your purpose into practice – to make the world a better place.
