Welcome from the Dean

Peter Sherman, Dean of Western's School of Business

Welcome to the School of Business at Western!

This is an exciting time to be in the School of Business. In the fall of 2018, the School began its new Outdoor Industry MBA. The School of Business continues to grow as the excitement around new graduate, experiential, international and career related programs accelerates.   

In April of 2018, the School of Business hired Louise Downey in our Career Success office.  Since the inception of this office, students have had the opportunity to interview with industry leaders such as PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Dell, Target, Charles Schwab and Wells Fargo.  Louise works closely with students to ensure they are professionally prepared to enter the job market.

The School has significantly increased the number of international opportunities available to its students, who now have the opportunity to study at Harlaxton College in the U.K. This program was ranked as the number one study abroad program in the U.S. and is available to Western students at a very affordable price.

The School of Business offers degrees in Accounting, Economics and Business Administration, with emphases in:

  • Energy Management
  • Innovation, Creativity & Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Resort Management
  • Marketing
  • Latin American Business
  • Management

The moment you step onto the Western campus, it’s obvious you have come to a very special place. It's my passion and promise to see that every student in Western's School of Business succeeds both in school and in life.

We invite you to visit campus and see the exiting opportunities that are developing here at Western. If you have any questions, please contact me at psherman@western.edu.
