Center for Economics and Business Research

The Center for Economic and Business Research (CEBR) at Western Washington University works in partnership with businesses, non-profits, government/quasi-governmental entities and tribal communities to respond to data and analysis needs. 

The Center brings students and faculty together with each client to find solutions that inform, engage and encourage innovation. Our work includes a variety of analysis documents, presentations and facilitated discussions backed by both primary and secondary research that is supported by academic standards and best practices.

Business is complicated – we are not.  You tell us your needs and we design a response strategy with you that works for you.  You don't have to worry about knowing the areas of research interest for faculty or what department might have students who can help - we'll connect the university to you and help you find what you need. Whether faculty for workshops, training and research or students for consulting and internships, we can help you! 

CEBR offers a pathway into Western Washington University and the expansive range of resources, technology and expertise we have access to.  A select group of undergraduate and graduate students work together with faculty and staff to develop and provide coordinated and packaged research, analysis and educational services that allow our clients to make more informed decisions. We have a deep commitment to providing a value to not only our students but also the region and the state. Contact us today to see what we can do for you.

CEBR is a member of the Association for University Business and Economic Research and the University Economic Development Association.
