The Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics was established at St. Norbert College after an unprecedented gift from Pat Schneider, wife of the late Don Schneider, for whom the school is named. The school is the region's center for the advancement of sound business practice, championing principles and methods that contribute to a thriving northeast Wisconsin. Aside from the many undergraduate business courses taught by its faculty, the school also has an MBA program offering three concentrations: business, health-care management, and supply chain and manufacturing.
