    Commitment to Diversity

    The University of Notre Dame, an equal opportunity employer with a strong institutional and academic commitment to diversity, endeavors to foster a vibrant learning community animated by the Catholic intellectual tradition.

    University of Notre Dame

    Founded in 1842, Notre Dame is one of the largest and best known Catholic universities in the world. Over the last 30 years, Notre Dame has aggressively pursued its goal to become the world's leading Catholic research institution. Notre Dame enrolls approximately 11,000 students – with approximately 75% at the undergraduate level.

    Notre Dame is famous for its loyal alumni. More than half of Notre Dame's alumni donate to the university-one of the highest donation rates in the world. The university's endowment, at over $10 billion, is among the largest in the United States.

    Some of the alumni devotion emanates from its storied football program, but even more important is the "Notre Dame experience"-small class sizes, a beautiful parkland campus with unique architecture (often voted one of the most scenic in the country), and the sense of camaraderie among faculty and students alike.

    Most recently, Notre Dame was ranked among the top 20 universities in the nation according to U. S. News and World Report.  

    Mendoza College of Business and Department of IT, Analytics, and Operations

    Over the last 20 years the Mendoza College of Business' research and teaching missions have advanced significantly. Notre Dame's undergraduate program was ranked #1 in the nation in 5 of the final 6 rankings published by Business Week. Its MBA program is relatively small, but highly ranked (#25 in Business Week). The Executive MBA (EMBA) program includes programs in two locations: South Bend and Chicago. The Wall Street Journal recently ranked Notre Dame's EMBA program #6 in the nation.

    In 2015 Mendoza launched a one-year Master of Science program for working professionals in Chicago, the MS in Business Analytics. In 2017 the MBA program launched a two-year dual-degree MSA/MSBA program and the ITAO department launched an undergraduate Business Analytics major. In 2019 Mendoza will launch a one-year, residential MS in Business Analytics program.
