Business Profile

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 an innovative spirit 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, up-to-date 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 trading center, analytics and marketing research lab, accounting lab, information systems lab, and collaborative student-faculty work space. 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.

The 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.

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 health care leadership, health information systems, and government contracting.

As a leading business school centered within a Jesuit college, 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 more than 100 Jesuit colleges and universities around the world. 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 three Centers of Excellence and regular lecture series, Madden students can gain valuable real-world experience throughout their time as students and beyond. Centers at Madden include the Center for Reflective Leadership (home to the Global Jesuit Case Series and the Arrupé Program in Social Ethics for Business); the Keenan Center (New York Family Business Center); and the Center for Global Engagement and Impact.

In the Keenan Center, the FamousEntrepreneurs Series regularly features top executives from Fortune 500 companies, offering exclusive access to some of the world’s most admired CEOs and management thought-leaders. Students have the opportunity to connect with StartFast, New York State’s leading business accelerator, housed on campus, and to learn firsthand what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur.
