Enhancing the student experience

Your support provides funding for dozens of initiatives, including Bloomberg Terminals, StartUp Collaborative Internships, the Wharton Research Data System and the iJay Store, the only student-run Apple-authorized campus store in the world.

A world-class business 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.  

Today, there are more than 10,000 Creighton business alumni making a difference in the world. And we mean to make thousands more — forming future leaders in the Jesuit tradition.

World-ready

“Every penny helps to educate students, but it doesn’t end there. It helps students truly prepare for internships and jobs, whether that’s here (in Omaha) or Hawaii or places on the other side of the world.”

— Jennifer Taniguchi, BSBA'18, from Hilo, Hawaii

Brisa Banuelos, Heider College of Business

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.”

DOING SOME GOOD

“Looking back to when I first started at Creighton, I see that I've grown more confident in my strengths and more certain of how best to use them. Any college matures students to an extent. But Creighton — with its Jesuit values, great resources and amazing professors — sends you into the world fully prepared and ready to do some good.”

— Kevin Zeller, Heider College of Business
