WSU’s College of Business will be recognized by our region’s students and employers for innovative engaged teaching and learning.
The mission of WSU’s College of Business is to offer innovative, high-value business programs that intellectually and experientially engage and challenge our students to equip them for lifelong success in the global community.
Over 85 percent of College of Business faculty hold terminal degrees in their respective fields of study. In addition to their dedication to teaching, the majority engage in significant ongoing research in business. Faculty members also bring to their teaching the knowledge they gain from regularly consulting with businesses and nonprofit organizations and from attending professional conferences, seminars, and workshops. Many business faculty participate in developing innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to teaching that help to broaden student perspectives. A number of faculty members promote and encourage collaborative projects engaging business partners.
