Our faculty educate students of business, enabling them to improve organizations and society, consistent with the Jesuit tradition. For undergraduates, the college builds on Xavier's strong liberal arts program to provide each student with excellent technical skills in his or her specific major as well as those soft skills that are applicable for any career. In fact, 98 percent of students are employed, are attending grad school or are volunteering within six months of graduation. For MBAs, the college strengthens student proficiencies in the core competencies and enhances students' business acumen.

The Williams College of Business is named for Cincinnati’s iconic Williams Family.
