Mission:

The Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics develops ethical business leaders through a challenging and engaging educational experience in the Catholic, liberal arts tradition, and rooted in the Norbertine practices of communio and localitas:

The late Donald J. Schneider graduated from St. Norbert with a degree in business. He served as president, CEO and chairman of Schneider National, the now-global transportation, intermodal and logistics provider headquartered in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin. Under his leadership the company grew into a trucking and logistics giant, in large part due to Don's commitment to the company's core values, an unwavering belief that a person's job delivered personal fulfillment and self-worth, and the early adoption of innovations that would later become industry standards.

In 2014, Pat Schneider, Don's wife, made a gift of unprecedented generosity to establish the Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics, and to found its Master of Business Administration program. It is a fitting tribute to Don's legacy, and a farsighted investment in the future of northeast Wisconsin business.

Currently the SSBE has three endowed chairs in business and economics which support faculty positions and research. The SSBE is a member of AACSB and in the process of pursuing AACSB accreditation.
