We are not bounded by the conventional ideals of a classroom model, and you shouldn’t be either. Through close, working relationships with peers, instructors and mentors, we extend a spectrum of unprecedented circumstances for you to develop proficiency in interpersonal communication as well as business intelligence. This philosophy encompasses each aspect of our educational approach, from the information engagement stage to our dynamic internship program, nationally recognized service-learning programs, and the Hogan entrepreneurial program that mentors students into successful business leaders. The depth of personal interaction that you will engage in is a distinctive characteristic of the Chaminade business program.
We have united an assembly of some of the nation’s preeminent intellects within their respective fields and given you direct access. Chaminade’s student-to-faculty ratio is centrifugal around our commitment to you of providing an optimal environment for the engaged development of knowledge.
Distinguished hands-on learning experiences available to undergraduates include:
Service-learning: Service-learning projects are an intrinsic part of the business curriculum, from freshman though senior year. These projects present you with the opportunity to apply the knowledge you've amassed in a wide variety of community settings. For example, our award-winning Tax Clinics allow accounting students to get work experience with actual clients, and at the same time assist homeless, low-income or immigrant families.
Our successful senior team field project was designed for students to engage in vital business issues with real organizations, and apply business models and knowledge learned in class. We develop our undergraduate senior capstone projects around a real-world problem, often with a non-profit organization, that can be directly utilized to help the less fortunate.
The Hogan Entrepreneurial Program pairs students with entrepreneurial business leaders in a mentor-mentee relationship. Regular weekly meetings afford students the opportunity to develop up close and personal experiences with established entrepreneurs. Note: The Hogan Entrepreneurial Program is available to all majors.
