As a leading business school centered within a Jesuit college, the Madden School of Business at Le Moyne College seeks to develop reflective individuals with innovative spirits who fulfill their potential as leaders, both locally and globally, embodying the Jesuit values of integrity, compassion, and service to others.
Faculty members challenge and enable students to attain their full potential through experiential involvement, ongoing scholarship, current methodology, and global partnerships.
With an outstanding foundation of teaching, scholarship, and service, the Madden School of Business is poised for extraordinary advances in visibility and impact on the regional, national, and global stages. A new, state-of-the-art facility features a live stock ticker in the Errico Family Trading Center, an analytics and marketing research lab, an accounting lab, and an information systems lab.
Madden’s accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) is a distinction earned by fewer than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business schools.
he Madden School of Business is home to seven undergraduate majors: Accounting, Business Analytics, Finance, Human Resource Management, Information Systems, Management and Leadership, and Marketing. Students have several opportunities to pursue two concurrent majors, or they can choose to supplement their major in Business with a minor in a different field. Minors offered include exciting areas of study such as Entrepreneurship and Sports Marketing.
Graduate students at Madden can choose among a master’s in Business Administration (MBA), a master’s in Information Systems (MSIS), a five-year Accounting/MBA program, and a five-year Accounting/MSIS program.
Certificate programs are available in Accountancy, Human Resources, Health Information Systems, and Government Contracting.
In keeping with its Ignatian heritage, Madden is deeply committed to the Jesuit ideals of intellectual rigor, cura personalis (care of the whole person), and service to and for others. “Our aim is to develop men and women with an entrepreneurial spirit, a deep commitment to the highest standards of ethics, and the capacity to think beyond traditional borders,” said Jim Joseph ’83, Dean of the Madden School. “We are striving to reach that goal not just through our course work but through a number of innovative new collaborations.”
Administrators and faculty members are preparing tomorrow’s executives by focusing on a global approach to business education, achieved in part by tapping into the network of nearly 200 Jesuit colleges and universities around the world. The benefits of these partnerships can be seen daily in the work that undergraduate students are doing. They are conducting research projects in places as diverse as Chennai, India; Seattle, Washington; Trondheim, Norway; and Fairbanks, Alaska. The topics they are addressing are as varied as the uses of Google Glass and wearable computing, logistics and supply chain modeling for oil spill response, risk advisory services in financial systems, white-collar crime in government accounting systems, and big data analyses for cybersecurity systems.
With access to three Centers of Excellence, students at Madden gain valuable real-world experience during their time on campus and beyond. Home to the Madden Lectures Series, the Global Jesuit Case Series, and the Arrupé Program in Social Ethics for Business, the Donald J. Savage Center for Reflective Leadership introduces students to business thought leaders from around the world. In the Keenan Center for Entrepreneurship, students have the opportunity to meet leading innovators through the Famous Entrepreneurs Lecture Series, StartFast (the region’s leading business incubator), and the New York Family Business Center. Taking advantage of the school’s global connections, the Hetterich Center for Global Engagement and Impact is home to Formation Abroad, a short-term study abroad program offering work, study, and service opportunities around the world.
