Immersed in the City and Grounded in Vocation
Trinity is an academic institution. But we aren’t in the knowledge business. We are in the people-development business. Knowledge acquisition is necessary for holistic learning as is hands-on learning, rigor, and a collaborative, community-oriented environment.
We know that students don’t know and shouldn’t feel pressured to know what is going to be their career or major as first-year students. What makes us distinct is that we empower students to discern, develop, and deploy their gifts and calling while they are at Trinity and part of the Trinity community. We do this by offering a solid business core and several specialized majors.
Bachelor of Arts in Business
Our Bachelor of Arts in Business program gives students the freedom to enroll in our business core courses and pursue a major or minor in non-business discipline.
Our Bachelor of Science in Accounting program provides students with the learning experiences to discern if accounting is an appropriate career path for them. In the process, Trinity’s accounting majors posted the highest average pass rate and highest average score among CPA exam candidates in Illinois.
Our Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurial Management, along with our Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Empowerment, offers students the experience of working through the process of starting a for-profit, non-profit, or social enterprise organization and prepares them for managing within especially innovative organizations.
Our Bachelor of Science in Finance program helps student experience and understand banking and finance, and includes courses in securities, asset allocation, global finance, and tax. Complemented with internships in downtown Chicago and the surrounding area, students develop the knowledge, skills, and values to discern, develop, and deploy their gifts and calling in this specific and important business field.
Our Bachelor of Science in Marketing program focuses on creativity in business and strategic decision making in product and services marketing. To help discern their gifts and calling for marketing-related work, many of our students enhance their project-based coursework with internships in downtown Chicago, including through our Chicago Summer program.
