Dean's Welcome

Excellence through engagement drives the programs and activities of the Williamson College of Business Administration.

Our mission is to prepare business professionals and leaders, conduct research with impact and support the economic development of our region. To that end, we provide rigorous academic preparation for our undergraduate and MBA students, focus on the leadership skills and professional development of our students, and capitalize on our strategic partnerships with the business community.

The high quality of our students, faculty and staff, programs and opportunities available to our students is recognized by our accreditation by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Students in the WCBA deserve the best, and AACSB accreditation is the external recognition that they are getting the best!

Successful business students develop a strong portfolio of knowledge, skills and experiences that position them for success in college and in their careers. Leadership activities, internships, strong academic performance, global learning experiences, community service and professional orientation are all components of the professional portfolio.

We are proud to offer a variety of academic programs and services in the college that support our students in achieving their career goals. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss the Williamson College of Business Administration with you. Whether you are a current student, prospective student, parent, alumnus or business professional, I hope you will feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to explore how you can get involved with the WCBA.

With Penguin Pride,

Betty Jo Licata, PhD
