Guided by Catholic and Vincentian traditions, we prepare current and future business professionals to learn, serve, and lead with integrity and live an exemplary life. Our vision is that the Niagara University College of Business Administration will be regionally prominent and internationally recognized in business education.

Catholic and Vincentian Mission
Niagara’s Catholic and Vincentian mission guides us to prepare ethical and compassionate business leaders. Our award-winning VITA program matches accounting students with people in the community that need assistance with their income taxes. In 2010, we were recognized by the IRS with the National Partnership Award for Outstanding Community Service as Outstanding Federal Income Tax Return Preparation. Our students have recently taken the lead in a project to clean and distribute thousands of used sandals from Niagara Falls’ Cave of the Winds attraction; these sandals are destined for Third World countries and will support sustainable projects.
