Finance and Marketing

Finance and Marketing are two of several focuses in the Business Administration major. These two distinct concentrations make up the Department of Finance and Marketing in Western's College of Business and Economics. While our department is home to two academic disciplines, each with its own faculty, we share the goal of providing a rigorous educational experience for our students that we hope will serve them well as professionals in many types of organizations or while pursuing further education.


The Department of Management offers concentrations in Management and International Business, a major in Business & Sustainability with an Energy Studies concentration option, as well as Business Administration and International Business Minors. We also offer students the opportunity to learn about small business and new ventures through our Entrepreneurial Studies courses as well as human resource management through our HRM course offerings.



The Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program is a rigorous, integrated graduate business program designed to prepare students  for responsible leadership positions in private, public, and not-for-profit organizations, as well as in entrepreneurial ventures. The Western MBA is a high quality general business program that develops organizational leaders who integrate strong managerial skills with a solid foundation in the core business functions within a global context.
