Why study Business at the Mount?
Any business school can teach you the tips and tricks of sales, marketing, accounting, finance, management, and more. What makes the Mount unique is that we teach you all of these skills not just for your own profit (though that's great if it happens!).

Instead of making it all about your own gain, we'll show you how you can use your business skills to effect change in your community and workplace.
Additionally, Mount Business students thrive under the teaching of seasoned business professionals.
