Welcome to Western Washington University’s College of Business and Economics! In a gorgeous setting within view of the Salish Sea, CBE faculty approach business in a way that will benefit people, the planet and profits. Students develop people and analytical skills with an  emphasis on sustainability. CBE’s programs are accredited by AACSB, an accreditation that assures students, parents, organizations and faculty that the College provides a quality education, and is led by faculty experts in their fields.
