Why Study Business at Concordia?

Responsive Professors

  • Our business professors are experts in the field, balancing their research with their practical experience to make what they teach relevant to your future.
  • Your professors will get to know you personally, challenge and support your intellectual growth, mentor you in preparing for a career, and provide detailed letters of recommendation even beyond your graduation. 

Real Experiences

  • You could compete on teams of Concordia students in a national competition sponsored by Thrivent to formulate a business plan.
  • Business Club activities allow you to connect with regional entrepreneurs, executives, investors, and attorneys.
  • Our Twin Cities metro location is home to Fortune 500 companies and a wide array of industry, governmental, and nonprofit employers, so our business students turn theory into practice at nearby internships and jobs.

Relevant Learning

  • Because the coursework and experiences outside the classroom are designed to teach the knowledge and skills demanded in the marketplace, our business students find career success after graduation.
  • Some of our business graduates move directly on to advanced study in graduate programs such as the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management, and others find immediate employment at companies, agencies and organizations of all sorts, including nationally known companies such as Estee Lauder, 3M, Allianz, Federal Express, KPMG, Medtronic, Target and Verizon.

Lifelong Value

  • Since a Concordia education is grounded in the liberal arts and exposes you to a wide range of disciplines across the sciences, humanities, and social sciences, you’ll graduate with versatile knowledge and critical thinking skills that are valuable in any career.
  • In our Lutheran setting, you’ll acquire greater self-understanding and explore your place in the home, workplace, community, and congregation as you prepare for a lifetime of thoughtful living and dedicated service.
