O'Hara's heirs: Business education at Notre Dame, 1921-1991



An academic enterprise is always a reflection ofthe context in which it is set — both institutional and cultural. Notre Dame’s College of Business Administration is no exception. Its development was the product of a Catholic, frontier school maturing into an internationally-known research university. And its evolution was greatly influenced by trends in business education and by the ebb and flow of societal factors — from periods of prosperity to economic hardship, through times of peace and war, times when business as a profession has been held in high esteem, and low. The college has navigated these various currents by being far-sighted, flexible and adaptive, and also by being steadfast in its mission, true to its most fundamental goals. Through the decades this has meant preparing individuals and engaging in a scholarship that applies professional acumen and an ethical perspective to local, national and international concerns. Or, to put it more bluntly: business making life better for all those affected by its reach. (from Introduction)
