Thank you for your interest in DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business.

The Driehaus College of Business is committed to delivering a personalized and holistic education to our students. For more than 100 years, our college has been empowering graduates to make a positive impact in the business world and in our society. 

The following distinctive qualities make our college the ideal place to study business:

Connections to the business community

The Driehaus College of Business has a longstanding reputation of connecting theory with practice. Supported by our Advisory Council of executives and alumni, we work closely with the business community to provide students with experiential learning opportunities, internships, mentoring, career connections and more. Our location in the heart of Chicago ensures our students receive valuable hands-on experience in a variety of business disciplines.

Innovative programs

The one constant in business is change. That’s why we regularly update our curriculum to equip students with the analytical, entrepreneurial and leadership skills that employers are seeking. From our bachelor’s in business degree to the DePaul MBA, specialized master's​, executive education and D​octorate in Business programs we offer, students learn by doing, grow and expand their networks, and acquire the tools to advance in their careers.

Social mobility

Guided by our Vincentian values, our college serves many first-generation students. We also work actively with corporate and nonprofit partners to support students from underrepresented communities, strengthening the pipeline of diverse talent. Whether it’s through corporate-supported scholarship programs or ​educational boot camps, the Driehaus College of Business is dedicated to creating opportunities for all of our students.
