Is business education at Catholic colleges and universities different than business education at secular institutions? This study assesses the current state of business education at Catholic colleges and universities based on a national survey of business school deans and faculty members and an audit of business unit web sites. Results suggest that business education at Catholic institutions could be more distinctive in refl ecting the religious identity of the institution. Curricular recommendations are offered for mission-driven business education with a particular focus on Catholic identity and ethics education.
