A stronger network

“Through your words, recommendations and contributions of time, expertise and investment, you not only strengthen the impact our students, alumni and faculty can make in the world; you continue to provide the connections that make our network stronger.”

A world-class education

Business is more than a series of transactions, and a Heider College of Business education strives to be more than a degree. We are a community driven by our values and committed to service in the world of business.  

Our namesake, Creighton alumnus Charles “Charlie” Heider, BSC’49, HON’10, and his wife, Mary, valued ethical leadership — a responsibility we’ve held close since 1920. 

As our alumni know, our students receive a transformative education from a Jesuit university renowned for developing ethical and socially responsible leaders.  

With the guidance of supportive faculty, Heider College of Business alumni have a near-perfect rate of finding jobs within six months of graduation, with a strong Jesuit foundation to give purpose to their actions once they get there. 

There are now more than 10,000 Creighton business alumni making a difference in the world, and we rely upon them to maintain the exemplary education of a top business school like ours.

So many opportunities

“I went to a smaller high school and wanted to continue to have those close relationships with my professors, where they know who I am, where I’m not just someone who’s anonymous in a classroom of more than 100 people.

“At Creighton, there’s such a great sense of community. And the University has presented me with so many opportunities and great experiences.”

— Brisa Banuelos, Heider College of Business
