From the Dean

Thank you for considering the Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business at Westminster College. I am proud to work with so many dedicated and experienced professionals who are focused on one primary goal: learning and success in the world of business. We aim to achieve this by focusing on excellence in teaching and academic scholarship, but also by providing our students with real-world expertise and experience that ensures our programs are current and relevant to your needs. Our professors are deeply committed to their students, and they all spend time providing individualized advising and personal attention. We foster corporate partnerships throughout the mountain west so that our students can hit the ground running with real-world, practical projects and assignments they can immediately put to work. Our Centers for Financial Analysis, Entrepreneurship, and Innovative Cultures, as well as our newly redesigned undergraduate and graduate curricula that allow students to customize their education to match their own personal needs, provide a rich learning environment for students with a wide range of backgrounds and interests. Our college-wide learning goals ensure that every graduate has the skills necessary to be not just good students and employees, but well-rounded citizens and members of society.
