Message from the Dean

The world of business is changing rapidly.  Almost all business needs to be international.  Markets change fast and business must respond or disappear.  As a student, you need to know that the college you choose is able to provide you with the perspectives, skills and abilities required for success in a dynamic marketplace.

The curriculum of the College of Business and Economics is current and responsive to the needs of businesses and other employers. We understand the importance of ethical leadership and a truly global perspective and understanding. We have built these into your course of study.

Our faculty are great teachers. They will provide you with the best opportunity for success in a very challenging world. The faculty remain current by being active with research in the topics they teach. You are always welcome to ask questions and share insight in class, in the office, and in the hallways. It is an exciting academic environment.

Our students are focused and work hard to achieve their potential. Every day you will be surrounded by fellow students eager to learn and participate in their education.  It is a very stimulating atmosphere.

I can assure you that the College of Business and Economics at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls is a great place to study.  Our business programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, AACSB International. Fewer than five percent of business programs worldwide have achieved this status. This provides you with independent proof of the high quality of education in the College of Business and Economics.
