Walsh

Not Your Typical Business School.

Walsh is more than a business school. We’re an accelerator. A think tank.
An incubator for ideas. We’re the fuel you need to take that next step.
Where leaders are made and where barriers are broken.

Since 1922, Walsh has combined theory and application to prepare students for successful careers. With each of our internationally and nationally ranked business and technology bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, you’ll learn from proven business minds who have been there and done that. 

This is where the future is made. Your future.
