Students studying together


The PURI School of Business at Rockford University is home to the Department of Economics, Business and Accounting. Within the School, students and faculty address together the concerns of business organizations in a capitalist society. We study economic theory, management and accounting, to be sure. We live in and work in a market economy, so it is imperative that we understand both how it does work and how it should work. We live also in a global economy, so we must understand the implications of globalization.

We want students to develop an understanding of the economy and society in which they live so that they can become effective participants in that society. Education for life and civic engagement are the ultimate goals of majoring in economics, business and accounting at Rockford University.
