Dean's Message

Jim Joseph, Dean, Madden School of Business

Dean's Message

PictureWe want to personally welcome you to the Madden School of Business at Le Moyne College and to encourage you to spend some time exploring our web-site and learning more about our School. We offer a wide range of opportunities for you to lay a strong foundation in business principles and practices that you can then build upon as you develop your leadership skills.

We are a community of scholars, educators and leaders bound by a common vision of excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, research, and experiential learning. We are committed to the highest standards associated with professional business education.  While that is compelling, it does not fully address what distinguishes a business education at the Madden School of Business. As a leading business school centered within a Jesuit college, we are deeply committed to the Jesuit ideals of intellectual rigor, cura personalis (care of the whole person), and service to and for others.

We strive to imbue our students with the ability to understand, discern, and lead as they address the most pressing issues of our times.  No matter the business discipline, our graduates are equipped to respond to the needs of a changing world – through their classroom experience, collaborative learning venues with for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, and leadership experiences at home and around the world.  “Educating the whole person” is both an end in itself and a means to becoming the leaders of the future. Madden School graduates look at the world through a distinct prism, reflect on their opportunities in ways consistent with our Jesuit heritage, and become dynamic forces for the social and organizational change so urgently needed.

With our outstanding foundation of teaching, scholarship and service, we are poised for extraordinary advances in visibility and impact on the regional, national and global stages. Our hope is that, as a Madden School of Business student, you will measure success by experiences that change your life – that “aha moment” delivered by an inspired professor, a study abroad experience that alters your world view, a series of conversations with your Madden Mentor and an internship that crystallizes a career path.

I am pleased to tell you that I am a graduate of Le Moyne and proud to lead a team of faculty and staff dedicated to your development and success. All of us in the School look forward to meeting you when you visit our School and campus. I encourage you to contact my office or me directly ( if you have questions or comments. 

We are committed to helping you to define your own path to success.  

All the best,

Jim Joseph
Madden School of Business
