The Breech School of Business offers undergraduate majors in accounting,economics, finance, management, and marketing. Also offered is a minor in business administration. All of the business majors are designed to provide academic preparation consistent with the highest professional standards and liberal arts tradition of Drury University. Majors in the five business subject areas provide students the opportunity to learn and grow while gaining an understanding of the role of business and economics in our world today.

At the graduate level, the Drury MBA provides an integrative approach to studying business in a personalized environment. In the classroom, you'll learn from professors who are steeped with real-world experiences, alongside students who vary in age, background and professional work experience. In addition, all MBA students are assigned a mentor from the Springfield business community who offer guidance and professional networking opportunities during the program.

It is important to note that learning at Drury University is not limited to the classroom. Each business major is designed to incorporate real world experiences, through meaningful internships and study abroad programs. It is through these engaging experiences our students make powerful connections between business theory and application practices. Through first-hand observations of business operations in other cultures, our students better appreciate the nature of the global business community they will one day serve.
