About The John Cardinal O’Hara Society
John Cardinal O’Hara, C.S.C., founded Notre Dame’s College of Foreign and Domestic Commerce (now the Mendoza College of Business) in 1921. He became the college’s first dean and later served as President of Notre Dame from 1934 to 1940.
Cardinal O’Hara’s vision — values-oriented curriculum, ethics, ideals and innovation — serves as the foundation of our commitment to Ask More of Business.
