Welcome from the Dean
More Than The Bottom Line, Business Education to Change the World.
Welcome to the Fermanian School of Business. Whether you are a high school student interested in one of our undergraduate majors; a parent wanting the best education for your child; a graduate considering our MBA program; a member of the business community interested in one of our interns, or a donor, we welcome you and invite you to visit our beautiful ocean-view campus and get to know us better!
At the Fermanian School of Business we are committed to high academic standards, real world learning and passionate faith. Our students really are different. Time-and-time again we hear from employers that our undergraduate interns are different - competent and ethical. The same is true of our MBA students who are among the finest in San Diego. We are also very proud our Accounting Alumni have placed in the top three of all California Universities for highest average score on the CPA exam in 2011 behind Stanford and UCLA.
The Fermanian School of Business is a fully accredited business school that actively engages with the business community in San Diego and California, the United States, and the world. Our programs provide networking events, internship and career opportunities, global outreach programs, entrepreneur and professional development programs, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We believe service is an expression of our faith and our discipline.
You will find a strong connection between the wide variety of educational programs in the FSB, and experiential opportunities such as networking, internships and service. To that end we have two Centers within the FSB. The Fermanain Business & Economic Institute focuses on regional economic research and development, networking and executive development events as well as coordinating the internship opportunities for our students. The Center for International Development is continually searching for new ways of engaging students in implementing their motto of "Business to Serve the Least of These." These programs provide unique opportunities to our students that are not available in many other universities.
So whether you are looking at our undergraduate, graduate or executive offerings, or simply looking for a faith-based business school to invest your time, talent or treasure, I am confident you will like what you see as you examine the Fermanian School of Business. We firmly believe that thte world needs highly competent business people who are committed to living Christ-like lives of integrity and who believe that in business, as in life, there is indeed "More than the Bottom Line."
I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about excellent programs and I hope that you have the opportunity to visit our campus and see our excellent learning facilities at our Point Loma, Liberty Station and Mission Valley campuses.
Let's work together to transform work into worship,
