The Division of Business and Information Management offers unique and very special learning opportunities which aim to meet the student’s professional needs and interests. In keeping with the University’s Franciscan tradition, programs emphasize respect for individuals, academic excellence, social responsibility and career preparation. The faculty and staff show their on-going dedication and commitment to students by providing a first-rate education with personal attention both inside and outside the classroom. We offer the following programs:

• Computer & Information Management
• International Business

• Combined Undergraduate and Graduate Sport and Entertainment Management (4+1)
Regardless of the selected major, all students in this program participate in a cooperative education experience (internship). We assist students in finding placement within an organization where they can apply their classroom learning and gain practical experience that will prepare them for their career. Students who graduate from this program go on to acquire challenging positions in private businesses, government, and non-profits organizations. Many of our graduates remain connected to their “roots” at Neumann University and serve as student mentors, guest speakers, and employers of newly graduated students.
