The Greehey School of Business offers innovative programs and centers designed to prepare students for real-world leadership and lifelong achievement, as well as for today’s ever evolving global and technological business environment.

Center for Global Business Studies

The Center for Global Business Studies is focused on developing international opportunities for students in the Greehey School of Business. Its functions include:

  • the development and facilitation of student involvement in study abroad opportunities across the world
  • international internships
  • special international events such as distinguished guest speakers
  • student international competition opportunities

One such competition is the Greehey School of Business’ annual participation in the Network of International Business Schools (NIBS) Worldwide Case Competition. The Center of Global Business Studies hosted the competition at St. Mary’s University in 2016, with our students competing in and managing the event that involved sixteen teams spanning eleven countries across four continents.

Harvey Najim Center for Business Innovation and Social Responsibility

The Harvey Najim Center for Business Innovation and Social Responsibility is a partnership between the Greehey School of Business, the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the School of Science, Engineering and Technology, and the School of Law, created by a gift from Harvey Najim.

The Najim Center provides knowledge and experiential learning opportunities for St. Mary’s business, engineering, and law school students while at the same time delivering measurable commercial benefit to San Antonio businesses, economic development and non-governmental organizations and agencies.

Meadows Center for Entrepreneurial Studies

Brother Paul Goelz, S.M., Ph.D., followed his passion for education and entrepreneurship by devoting his life to teaching free enterprise at St. Mary’s University and helping entrepreneurs succeed. He established the Algur H. Meadows Center for Entrepreneurial Studies in 1981 with a grant he obtained from the Meadows Foundation of Dallas, which later was supplemented by a gift from the Gulf Oil Foundation.   The academic programs in entrepreneurship focus on the career preparation of students who plan to initiate and operate their own businesses rather than enter the corporate world of large companies in a line or staff position.
