On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Dahlkemper School of Business (DSB), welcome! Gannon’s DSB is an excellent choice for your business education and preparing for a successful career.
Our philosophy on business education mirrors the words of Peter Drucker, "Since we live in an age of
innovation, a practical education must prepare a man for work that does not yet
exist and cannot yet be clearly defined." We strive to inspire students to engage on a journey of life-long learning. As the business world is ever-changing, we provide students a framework for understanding the why’s of business education, not
just the ‘how to’. With solid knowledge of business fundamentals and advanced knowledge in an area of specialization, graduates possess a skillset that can be used today and adaptable to the business world of the future.
The School of Business is co-located with the Erie Technology Incubator (ETI), the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the NWPA Innovation Beehive Network. The synergies created via the established and integrative relationship between DSB and
these entities provide students with first-hand experience of starting businesses and interacting with start-up companies. These opportunities further enhance your business education and demonstrate a sought-after skill, entrepreneurial thinking,
to future employers.
The possibilities for School of Business students are endless – you can engage in coursework that leads to professional certifications while you’re still an undergraduate, experiential learning opportunities, study abroad experiences, business start-up
support and integration with the entrepreneurial ecosystem, and the list goes on. Most importantly, you’ll be supported by a dedicated faculty who are eager to develop you into successful business professionals.
What are your business passions and aspirations? Come and join us so we can help you achieve your (endless) possibilities.
