School of Business

The School of Business at Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee provides students with real-world insight grounded in ethical principles and sound business practices with a distinctly Catholic, Christian perspective. An Aquinas business education begins with a strong liberal arts foundation, which includes an emphasis on theology, philosophy, and ethics along with other disciplines to help form the character of our students.

After the foundation has been laid and a context established, students in the School of Business receive well-rounded preparation in quantitative, communication, and interpersonal skills to prepare them for a broad range of careers in the business world. The program’s course of study is modeled on the nation’s top undergraduate business programs to ensure that our graduates possess the same vocabulary, tools, and techniques as those who receive their degree at other leading institutions.

But where the Aquinas School of Business, as a Dominican and Catholic business school, truly differentiates itself is in the “caritas,” or charity, with which it embraces each individual. Students are provided the attention, the encouragement, the skills and the confidence they need to realize their true potential.

The Catholic Church has long maintained the legitimate role of profit in a business enterprise, but has also asserted that it cannot be the only measurement of business success. Therefore, while our students receive the same breadth and depth of curriculum as those at much larger institutions, the goal of Aquinas College’s School of Business is to train competent business professionals who are conscious of their broader social responsibilities and recognize business as a vocation.

The faculty is very knowledgeable, especially in the business program. Many of the teachers are adjunct and have experience in the field; this made learning more enjoyable and made me respect my teachers even more.

Having the experience of actually being out in the workforce, and having to come back to school, I can generally see what is used and what's not used. And Aquinas is one of those schools that almost every business class that I've taken has been relevant, it's been important, and it's increased my toolkit of different things that I can do in the real world.

- James E.

We had one mother who said it better than anything that I could ever say. She said, "My son is at Aquinas College learning to be a business leader with a soul." And if we can do that, then I'm pretty happy. That's all I can ask.

- Dan D.
Business faculty

I felt that teachers at Aquinas genuinely cared about by success and that was such a relief coming from such a big school.
