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.

“You are supporting so many opportunities, and you are inspiring us to make the most of every one of them. I work as a student caller with the Creighton Phonathon, and I will tell you what I tell people over the phone — ‘When you make a gift to Creighton, you might not know whose life you’re changing, but you are changing someone’s life.’”

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
