Dear Website Visitor,
On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Gary E. West College of Business at West Liberty University, welcome! We are committed to the ideal of quality education for business students and to serving the business community.
To ensure that our programs are of high quality and that our graduates are able to enter the world of business and have successful careers, it is important that our programs submit to rigorous review by our peers in order to achieve recognition by external accrediting organizations. I encourage you to explore our accreditation status on our Accreditation and Quality Assurance page.
Our mission is: To provide students with an environment that enables them to acquire the knowledge, skills, competencies, ethics, and values necessary to make a positive contribution to society and the business profession and to grow both professionally and personally. The accomplishment of this mission is evidenced by the career successes of our graduates in technical, professional, managerial and executive positions in all types of organizations throughout the nation. Indeed, in a recent survey, our graduates expressed satisfaction not only with the progression of their careers, but also with the career preparation they received at West Liberty University.
The globe background in our logo is symbolic of the global economy that WLU business graduates will be entering upon graduation, and our slogan “We’re focused on your future” articulates our commitment to help students find their direction in order to live their dreams. Students entering today’s challenging job market need business knowledge as well as professional skills for employment, and we are focused on providing both.
If you are a prospective student, I hope you enjoy your visit to the Gary E. West College of Business website and that it provides you with the information you need to help you decide to enter the profession of business at West Liberty University, where we will challenge you to be your best. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call (304) 336-8419 or email [email protected].
