Western offers students a unique opportunity to experience the outdoors while studying the business disciplines. Mountain biking, running, hiking, skiing, kayaking, sailing, camping, and the Pacific Northwest way of life is integral to the CBE experience. Situated between Seattle and Vancouver, we are within reach of multiple urban opportunities.

The CBE family consists of faculty, staff, students and their parents, alumni, the city of Bellingham, and all the employers of our graduates.
