The business school jumped from the fifth-largest business program in Greater Philadelphia a year ago to third-largest in 2017, according to a Daily Local News report by Brian McCullough.
With 2,991 students in the program, WCU trails only Temple’s 6,666 and the University of Delaware’s 3,369.
“What this shows is that we have grown in a sustainable way,” said College of Business and Public Management Dean Anthony Wheeler.
That growth has centered around accounting, entrepreneurship, and new additions in 2016 and 2017, including bachelor’s degrees in urban and environmental planning as well as international business, plus master’s degrees in urban and regional planning as well as human resource management.
“We have a good balance of programs consistent with what the market is looking for,” said Senior Vice Provost Jeffery L. Osgood Jr.
The WCU business school is also ranked 82nd nationwide for its MBA program, per the latest list from U.S. News and World Report.
