In addition, the business graduate has to develop uniquely human traits such as social responsibility, empathy, and compassion, and enhance skills such as intercultural communication and teamwork. The Patterson School of Business (PSB) aims to deliver a mission-based and differentiated business education that meets societal needs.

The business has a social responsibility and a non-negotiable duty to the community.
Neighborliness is intrinsic to business activities.
