New programs in the dahl school of business

This is a very exciting time for the Dahl School of Business.  As noted throughout the pages below, the DSOB is introducing three new academic programs:  a 4+1 BBA to MBA program, a Sport Management and Leadership major, and an Organizational Communication major.   When other colleges and universities are talking about cutting programs and positions, we recognize the time is right to invest in new opportunities for the students and employers of our region.  These new programs emerge from areas of strength and are a direct response to student interest and the needs of our community.  This has been the Viterbo way, from the time the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration began preparing teachers for the schools in this region in the late 1800s to the introduction in 2003 of our MBA program focused on Ethical Leadership. 

The DSOB’s mission includes preparing students to make a difference as ethical and effective leaders in organizations and society and you’ll find mission at the foundation of each of these new programs.  Feel free to contact me, Tom Knothe, any-time with questions or comments. I can be reached at teknothe@viterbo.edu or 608.796.3376.
