Welcome From the Dean

Welcome to Western Washington University’s College of Business and Economics! In a gorgeous setting with a 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, assuring students, parents, and organizations that the College provides a quality education led by faculty who are experts in their fields.

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.

We welcome you to our College!

Best Regards,

Dr. Scott T. Young
