Byrum School of Business

Where Business Happens

Business is a competitive, dynamic activity and to excel at it, practice is required.  At the Clark H. Byrum School of Business students get that practice from day one.  ALL of our students engage with real business people and projects regularly, starting in freshman year, to develop key skills and gain experience.  At our school, students practice business early and often.

Learn By Doing

It's not about textbooks, lectures, and exams at The Byrum School.  In our program, you DEVELOP business plans, WORK on a real consulting team, RUN a business, DO an internship.  In other words, you learn about business by DOING business instead of just reading about it.

The Marian App

Marian students learn how to execute business plans. The Marian App is the result of a Byrum School of Business class competition. The best business plan received a loan for $3000 to get their business off of the ground. The Marian App is a one-stop shop for all things Marian. News, sports, events and forums keep the Marian community connected with the portability of an IPhone or Android device. 

The Marian App is available on Android and IPhone

What makes us different?

We are different, and better we think, because in our school, working on real business issues is not optional.  Unlike other business programs, students in the Byrum School are required to interact with a variety of businesses.  In our program, business opportunities are expected to occur every day.
