Greetings and welcome to the W. Fielding Rubel School of Business at Bellarmine!
As the new dean of the Rubel School, I welcome your interest in our programs. I hope you’ll explore our website and learn more about our programs, our faculty and the opportunities possible here.
The Rubel School offers a comprehensive
business program that provides a strong foundation in the fundamentals of business, ethics and real-world skills, while also allowing for specialized study in accounting, business administration, economics, finance and marketing. This program is complemented
by the university’s core curriculum, which ensures that students develop the critical-thinking, communication and problem-solving skills that are valuable in any career.
The Rubel School has a reputation for academic excellence. The faculty are experts in their fields, and many have extensive industry experience, but they are also dedicated teachers. The Rubel School is accredited by the world’s foremost authority
on business education quality—the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Fewer than 5% of all business schools have earned this elite accreditation.
Bellarmine is committed to providing individualized attention to each student. You will get to know your faculty and classmates, and they’ll get to know you. This will give you access to personalized advising and mentoring as well as a community
that will help you achieve your goals—while you’re here at Bellarmine and during your career. You will also have the opportunity to be involved in various organizations and in community service, allowing you to grow personally and professionally.
Beyond the classroom, Bellarmine takes advantage of its location in Louisville, Kentucky. Louisville is a vibrant city with a strong business community and thriving startup scene, one that highly values Bellarmine students and alumni. Students and faculty
engage with the community and local businesses in their classes, extending their learning with real-world applications. Business students have access to a range of internships and job opportunities, as well as networking events and other professional-development
activities. Rubel alumni are active and involved as leaders in their fields and in the community, a testament to Bellarmine’s education of the whole person.
If you are seeking a personalized, high-quality business education in a place where you will be valued and mentored by faculty and staff who care about your growth and development through your academic career and beyond, the Rubel School may be a good
To learn more, I encourage you to visit the campus, meet with faculty and students, and see for yourself what makes Bellarmine so special.
