“The thing that has stood out the most about my experience at the School of Business is all the great relationships I have been able to build in my time at Duquesne. I have been able to work closely with professors and build lasting relationships with them and my classmates that I know will last long into the future. Building these relationships has been just as meaningful as the education that I have been provided in the classrooms. Duquesne School of Business allows so many opportunities to build these relationships inside and outside the classroom.”

Center for Student Success

The Eugene P. Beard Center for Student Success (CSS) launched in fall 2022, marking the beginning of a new era for the Palumbo-Donahue School of Business. The Center is the realization of the School's integrated, holistic approach for serving students. To realize this vision, staff roles across the school were reimagined to better support students, and the 7th floor of Rockwell Hall was completely renovated, making the Center a physical reality.
