Message from Dean Radson

The experiences and knowledge you gain during college will have a tremendous impact not only on your personal growth, but also on your professional future. 

Through interaction with our experienced faculty and experiential learning opportunities, students in the Foster College of Business are prepared, knowledgeable and ready to impact the business world.

Unlike many universities, Foster College of Business students are admitted as freshmen and immediately begin taking business classes. With 100% of our classes taught by faculty and a 14:1 student/faculty ratio, professors know your name, challenge and inspire you, and take a personal interest in your success. 

Additionally, Foster College of Business students have numerous opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills outside the classroom. Our core business curriculum will teach you the foundational aspects of doing business and is complimented by abundant opportunities for you to participate in practical, business experiences. For example, as a senior business student, you’ll undertake the Senior Capstone Project where, working with a team of other Foster College seniors, you’ll serve as consultants to real business clients. 

You can also join one of our 14 student-led business organizations and begin developing your leadership skills.

The Foster College can also help you see the world of business from a global perspective. A wide range of study abroad options and our unique Global Scholars Program offer you varying levels of engagement with our global marketplace. 

Remember, the place you choose to spend the next four years should prepare you with the confidence and skills to succeed. At the Foster College of Business, you’ll focus on more than getting your first job—you’ll train for a career. The Foster College of Business is one of 1.1 percent of business schools in the world to achieve and maintain AACSB International accreditation for both our business and accounting programs. Over 70% of our students secure internship experiences. For the past five years, 94 percent of our graduates were either putting their degrees to work or attending graduate school in their prospective fields. 

Our dynamic and evolving business world consistently demands that we be willing to step outside our comfort zone, take on new challenges, and imagine new possibilities. As you prepare to enter that world, I am confident that a degree from Bradley University's Foster College of Business will prepare you with the knowledge, skills and experience to navigate a challenging and rewarding career.
