Welcome Message from the GSM

Welcome to the Graham School of Management (GSM) at Saint Xavier University! GSM, part of SXU's College of Nursing, Health Sciences and Business, strives to develop business leaders with personal, professional and service excellence. Students pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program in any of our five highly sought-after concentrations (Accounting, Finance, Management, Digital Marketing and Hospitality Management) in our AACSB-accredited business curriculum will develop human, professional and practical skills that help them obtain meaningful employment. GSM offers programs designed to align with Chicago's service economy that are in high demand in the Chicagoland area and beyond. GSM also offers high-quality undergraduate programs in computer science (B.S.) and computer information systems (B.A.). As a Mercy institution of higher education, we believe that human skills, often referred to as soft or critical skills in business, are essential to creating successful business leaders. We recognize that business leaders need to communicate effectively, problem-solve, collaborate, and value inclusion and diversity. We believe learning the human side of business is just as crucial as developing traditional business acumen.

GSM is dedicated to preparing students to be career-ready. We work with leading employers such as PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), Baker Tilly, Deloitte, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), National Futures Association, Lettuce Entertain You, Northwestern Mutual, Mercer, and more to ensure that our programming is relevant and helps students find employment opportunities.

Despite our relatively small footprint on 103rd Street, I'm confident that you will soon discover the enormous impact the Graham School of Management has in the Chicagoland area. Our small size permits us to be flexible and personal as we work together in helping learners develop into ethical, successful managers and entrepreneurs who contribute to the common good.
