Welcome to the Heller College of Business (HCB) at Roosevelt University!

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Heller College of Business (HCB) at Roosevelt University, I am delighted to welcome you to our diverse community of highly talented faculty and staff who are deeply care about our students and their success.  They are passionately working to “provide a diverse population of students the best opportunity to develop critical skills necessary for success” and are committed to academic, creative, and service excellence who value differences in personal experiences and perspectives.

Academic excellence and social responsibility form the cornerstones of our mission at the Heller College at Roosevelt University. Our comprehensive, innovative curriculum matched with our experiential learning opportunities thoroughly prepare students to serve as ethical and socially conscious leaders in the business industry and meet the needs of the 21st century workforce. In addition, we emphasize mutual understanding, inclusion, social consciousness, and action toward social justice.

Whether you're interested in a bachelor's degree or master’s degree, our undergraduate and graduate degree business programs provide a flexible, first-rate education with online and classroom instruction; accelerated, fast-track programs; and dual degree options, all taught by our faculty with real-world experience. In addition to our MBA, some of our most popular programs include  master's degrees in human resource management (MSHRM), real estate (MSRE), and accounting forensics (MSAF) , as well as our bachelor's degree in accounting.

The Heller College has an outstanding group of faculty and staff who sincerely care about students’ success, and are passionate about teaching and mentoring students to develop their leadership skills and professional careers. With small classes, flexible schedules, they are able to provide individual attention in teaching, mentoring, and advising students in both campuses: downtown Chicago, the heart of our global financial markets, and in Schaumburg, the hub of business headquarters and offices. 

We take great pride in our outstanding alumni who provide internships and mentoring as well as business executive mentoring to our students, and offer an extensive network of professional contacts for our students interested in pursuing rewarding career opportunities.

We emphasize three fundamental attributes in our management education that we believe are essential for the success of business leaders and managers in today’s global marketplace: Character, Competency, and Commitment (CCC). It is our belief that moral values and business ethics define Character and is the most important attribute of effective leadership. Competency, both in academics and experience, is essential for business management and leadership success. In particular, transformational experiential learning such as internships, field projects, and service learning are integral components of business education in preparing successful and socially responsible business leaders. Commitment, specifically, persistence to education, is the third important attribute of successful business leaders, and an important aspect of our management education program. 

We consider the diversity of our student population, and their commitment to their studies a rich resource for partnership with the business community and economic development of the greater Chicago metropolitan area. We have an outstanding alumni network for business executive mentorship and tremendous opportunity of partnerships between the Heller College and the Chicago business community that have translated into internships, field projects, service learning and other experiential learning opportunities for our students.

As a potential student, an industry partner, or other loyal supporter, you are welcome to review the information presented in our website and to visit our beautiful vertical campus in Chicago and Schaumburg, and to learn more about our innovative programs. I am confident that you will find the Heller College of Business a vibrant and exciting learning community in the heart of Chicagoland.
