Welcome to The Bill Munday School of Business!

We are excited to have you join our thriving, student-centered community. In The Bill Munday School of Business, faculty and staff are dedicated to fostering student success and lifelong learning.

We invite you to actively participate in this community by engaging in your coursework, connecting with fellow students, and immersing yourself in the Austin business environment.

In an era of rapid technological change, the proliferation of information, and increasing access to data, each day brings new challenges and opportunities. The pace of change, however, can be both exhilarating and overwhelming.

In The Bill Munday School of Business, we work alongside you as you develop the tools to identify key issues and ask important questions, in order to make sound business decisions that rest firmly on ethical foundations.

Businesses today seek employees with critical thinking and analytical skills, as well as the ability to collaborate and communicate effectively.

We are proud to offer a curriculum grounded in the dynamic business ecosystem of Austin. You will work alongside faculty to apply business principles to real issues, leverage technology, and harness creativity. With a holistic approach to education, the coursework at St. Edward’s also provides exposure to multiple disciplines that prepare you for a professional life of impact.

Your hilltop community is enhanced by immersion in the local and global communities. From joining a culturally diverse student body to engaging in Austin’s thriving urban environment, opportunities abound. You can take advantage of entrepreneurial boot camps, pitch and business plan competitions, capstone projects (on campus and around the world), and service learning in the hub for innovation.

Our Holy Cross tradition is centered on education for all, and it is my privilege to be a part of this community – and to warmly welcome you home to the hilltop.

Sincerely,

Marianne Ward-Peradoza, PhD
Dean, The Bill Munday School of Business
