Foster College of Business

Bradley’s Foster College of Business provides a comprehensive undergraduate education to over 600 business students in twelve majors and 13 minors. The college also offers three unique graduate degrees.

You prepare for the future by:

  • Interacting closely with faculty who bring strong business connections to the classroom
  • Experiencing careers through internships, class projects and networking with professionals
  • Developing skills for business success each day. Because we integrate the business world into the classroom, our students see a 96 percent career outcomes rate. That means our students are in the workforce, attending graduate school or pursuing other dreams within six months of graduation.

Ranked among the best, Foster College is one of less than two percent of the world's business schools to achieve and maintain the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) accreditation for both our business and accounting programs.

The college is also home to three professional centers, the Turner Center for Entrepreneurship, the Center for Professional Excellence and the Center for Cybersecurity. These centers allow Foster College to be a business resource to organizations in the community.
