MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

Welcome to Western’s School of Business, where you’ll find a community dedicated to preparing students for the global marketplace.

Here at Western, we go beyond just a business education. A strong foundation in the liberal arts ensures our students graduate with the ability to communicate clearly, solve problems and think critically. Plus, our professors mix business theory with practical application to real-world problems, so students graduate with hands-on experience in their field.

Studying business is an excellent way to combine personal passion with your future profession. Whether you’re interested in healthcare, performing arts, sports, science or something else, every industry has a business aspect.

If you’re searching for a school with engaged faculty, an emphasis on experience and a focus on career success, Western may be the perfect fit for you.
