Our Mission

Welcome to the School of Business and Communication! Our students are taking the world by storm, led by world class faculty who combine scholarship with real-world professional experience. At Concordia University Texas, our unique combination of faith, learning, and life-changing experiences prepares our graduates to be people of influence--ready to make a difference in any arena they choose. We excel at teaching our students the skills they need to be successful--critical thinking, creativity, communication, and leadership. Classes are small, so every student gets the attention they deserve. And beyond the classroom our students benefit from our close collaboration and partnership with Austin's dynamic business community. We are accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), and guided by best practices of the National Communication Association (NCA).
