Welcome to the Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership at the University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana. We’re leading the way to provide extended experiential learning opportunities through our Busse EPIC undergraduate programs where students graduate with 2 years of real-world work experience in just 4 years. Our rigorous business curriculum integrates international topics, entrepreneurship and ethics.
In the Spotlight
Through the EPIC Honors Program students gain real work experience through progressive professional experiences. Partnering with Fort Wayne-regional employers, students are gaining the vital skills needed to be competitive in the workplace. "My co-op experience better prepared me for a job and made me more appealing to potential employers, as I became a professional while still in school." -Zach Baron, three-year Indiana Michigan Power business co-op student
Once you meet Anthony Moore, a recent graduate from the University of Saint Francis, you quickly realize that he is a passionate leader and a lifelong learner. In this interview he talks about how his two tours to Iraq altered his life and led him to USF.
In the Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership business is good. At USF, business isn’t all about spreadsheets and profit margins. Our Franciscan values will teach you how to be a beacon for what is right and good about business.
We believe that entrepreneurship and commerce can be instruments for good, that business management skills are only as useful as your values, and that the courage to do what is right defines success of any enterprise.
We offer students the opportunity to learn the key business concepts in a classroom intensive program with internships as part of the curriculum. Our students can choose to focus more on experiential learning and receive two years of real work experience and executive mentoring prior to graduation.
Either way, at USF, Business is Good.
