Understanding the need to develop work-ready, street-smart leaders who can be impact players for their organizations and communities right out of the gate, the Angell Snyder School of Business is constantly improving our program offerings and using innovative instructional methods to prepare highly skilled graduates.

Named in honor of two of Ottawa University’s most impactful and admired business professors, Dr. Wayne Angell and Dr. Sherwin Snyder, the Angell Snyder School of Business has a long and distinguished history of developing leaders who combine strong technical and analytical capabilities with a clear moral compass. Alumni of the Angell Snyder School of Business are distinguishing themselves in several different industries in the United States and in various cities around the globe.
