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, our faculty and staff provide personalized business education that informs and transforms to help improve the lives of others.  Our approach to education is experiential, interdisciplinary and global.  

Whether you pursue a career in creative economies, entrepreneurship, or choose a more traditional career path within a large corporation, our business education provides a global reach. Students have access to study at our 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. Our students interested in social entrepreneurship and social innovation have worked with organizations such as Honduras Good Works, Casa Luz in Costa Rica, and Save the Churches in France.  Plus close to 400 international students study at our Austin campus each year, helping to create a highly diverse learning environment and access to a global network.

In both our undergraduate and graduate programs, students learn to think critically and creatively, act with integrity, and serve their community. Academic rigor and relevance characterize all of our programs. Our relationships with leading Austin incubators connect our students with key organizations and the Austin entrepreneur community. Our undergraduate programs provide a strong liberal arts foundation and afford opportunity for internships that strengthen classroom learning and provide career success after graduation.  Our graduate programs are highly experiential. Students in our MBA in Digital Media Management program are required to participate in the SXSW Interactive Conference. Our flexible MBA program along with our Master of Arts in Organization Development and Master of Science in Organizational Leadership and Ethics all require students 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. 

Our faculty, while dedicated teachers and scholars, are also experienced professionals, many of whom are still embedded in the business community. Our faculty delights in mentoring and coaching their 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. They are mature, motivated and creative professionals, proactive in serving their community and seeking justice for others.   

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