Welcome to The Bill Munday School of Business

At the Bill Munday School of Business, located in Austin Texas, one of the leading hotbeds for the creative economies, we foster the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit. In concert with our Holy Cross mission, faculty and staff provide personalized business education that informs and transforms to help improve the lives of others. Our approach to business education connects you to the rich Austin ecosystem characterized by entrepreneurship, social enterprise, innovation, global collaboration and business analytics. With access to Austin-based community partners, like Capital Factory, you have exposure to leading innovators, who shape the future of technology and business. 

Whether you pursue a career in creative economies or entrepreneurship, or choose a more traditional career path within a large corporation, our business education also provides a global reach. Students can study at more than 15 partner universities across Europe, Asia, Latin America and Australia. We offer dual degrees with established partners, as well as study abroad experiences. In either case, learning extends well beyond the classroom, as students engage in real-time consulting projects for organizations such as 3M -China, Adobe - Czech Republic, and U.S. Steel - Slovakia. Students interested in social enterprise have worked with organizations such as Honduras Good Works, Casa Luz in Costa Rica, and Save the Churches in France.  Over 400 international students study at our Austin campus each year, helping to create a highly diverse learning environment and access to a global network.

Our students learn to think critically and creatively, act with integrity, and create sustainable wealth to improve their lives and those of others. Academic rigor and relevance characterize all of our programs. Undergraduate programs provide students with a strong liberal arts foundation and afford opportunity for internships that strengthen classroom learning and provide career success. Graduate programs emphasize applied learning that resulting in robust student outcomes. All graduate business students are required to complete a consulting capstone project with external organizations. Students in our challenging Master of Accounting program boast a CPA pass rate in the top 20% nationally for schools our size and in 2014, CPA pass rate ranked second in Texas. 

Our faculty are dedicated professors and experienced business professionals who delight in mentoring and coaching students to build strong relationships that lead to career opportunities. St. Edward’s University graduates are seen by the business community as creative problem solvers with an entrepreneurial mindset who work to improve their communities.   

Join us as we drive our mission to the marketplace around the world!
