Our outstanding faculty and staff are committed to building educational communities that not only facilitate student learning but generate a positive and engaging energy that inspires us all in our journey. I am always delighted to hear from current students and alumni that their experience here is transformative. Both lifelong friendships and careers are forged here. 

One of the hallmarks of a business education at Western New England University is our AACSB accreditation that serves as an assurance of excellence. As we move boldly into the future, we believe that our role as a College of Business is to bridge business and academia. Business partnerships, relevant curricula, and faculty engaged in business research and with the business community guarantee our students that they are positioned well to pursue their dream career in business. Internships, live cases, industry research projects, simulations, field experiences, and a robust business speakers’ series are just some of the career building opportunities that connect students and faculty to the business world and the business world to Western New England University.

We offer remarkable experiences for students ranging from international travel courses and study abroad to honors and global scholarship programs. Our Analytics Center, Entrepreneurship Competition and Trading Center are just some of the educational platforms that encourage students to problem-solve, lead, innovate, and create. We are so proud of our extended College of Business community where all of us and each of us play an important role in shaping the future of business. Be part of the dynamic business community at Western New England University. Learn. Grow. Succeed with us.
