Economic Impact

Discover why Creighton is vital to the local economy.



Creighton University does more than prepare students to be civic leaders through a Jesuit education. We’re a key part of the economic vitality of Omaha and the surrounding region.

Our commitment to the greater Omaha area includes attention to high ethical standards. We’ve partnered with the Business Ethics Alliance to prove that doing the right thing works. Through its products and services, resources and opinions, expert speakers and programming the Alliance supports ethical conversation and practice.
