College of Business


In the Pacific University College of Business …

We believe good communicators make good leaders. That is why every undergraduate business student takes coursework in writing and communication. Because your business plan is only as good as your ability to explain it and communicate it.

We believe that good listeners make good leaders. That is why every undergraduate business student at Pacific takes courses to build cultural and international competencies. Because you have to understand your audience before you can pitch your idea.

We believe in the power of trial and error. That is why every business student has the opportunity to pitch his or her business idea and to win $25,000 worth of start-up support through our Berglund Center for Innovation. More interested in finance? Join the College of Business Investment Club and learn portfolio investment skills with real money in real time. Because you have to learn which risks are the right risks.

We believe in rolling up our sleeves. That is why the College of Business has a dedicated internship coordinator to help place our students in actual businesses where they can test out what they are learning in the classroom. Because real learning happens at the juncture of theory and practice.

We believe in hard work. That is why the College of Business faculty members are committed to challenging their students in the classroom every single day. Because success requires commitment, resilience and grit.
