Our mission is to deliver high-quality education that will enable our students to become successful business practitioners. We serve students primarily from South Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean in a highly cosmopolitan, multicultural setting. We function as part of a Catholic, international University, a community of scholars committed to raising up all people in the tradition of the Dominican Order. We seek faculty who will care deeply about our students and are committed to excellent teaching, service to our constituencies, and continuous improvement. Our intellectual contributions emphasize practical applications but our faculty also engages in basic research and instructional development. We strive to develop in our students a global orientation, an entrepreneurial attitude, and a strong sense of ethics and social responsibility.


We offer a student-friendly, caring environment and international diversity that allows our students to not only study the global business environment but to experience it on a daily basis, in a dynamic and vibrant center of global trade and finance. We are positioned as the only institution in South Florida that strives to meet the most rigorous international standards while still offering all the attractions of a small, private school including small class size, an accessible faculty whose first responsibility is teaching, and the ability to respond quickly to the evolving needs of our students and the business community. Barry is accredited by AACSB-International, the gold standard for schools of business. It is a major part of our uniqueness that we are the only AACSB-accredited school in Florida that is part of a Catholic University, and the only AACSB-accredited school in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area where teaching is the primary responsibility of the entire faculty.


Our aim is to become known as the school of choice for students desiring a truly international, high-quality, ethically-based education in a uniquely diverse, exciting yet intimate environment.
