The Wheeling University Mission Statement has provided a primary foundation for the development of the Mission for the Department of Business. Students will be motivated to learn for life, to be proficient leaders in their fields, and to be competent, knowledgeable and ethical. The purpose of business education is to contribute to the development of individuals prepared for productive and socially responsible lives and for leadership in the world of business and non-profit organizations.

The Business curriculum consists of a broad exposure to the arts and sciences and a comprehensive education in business to include coursework in Accounting, Economics, Entrepreneurialism, Finance, International Business, Management, Marketing, and Personal Financial Planning.

The Business program is designed to meet two objectives: provide a basic understanding of the nature and purpose of business and its role in society; and create a comprehensive understanding of the structure and processes of business. It focuses on analytical skills, managerial practices, and the growing infusion of information technology/data analytics /artificial intelligence into the operation and decision making of businesses. Because businesses do not make decisions in a vacuum surrounded solely by market forces, the curriculum also addresses the dynamic global, social, political, economic and technical environments in which business operates and evolves. Communication, leadership and analytical skills, and experience in working effectively in teams, all qualities required for success in business, are fundamental elements of the program. Instruction is provided by faculty with extensive experience in business and related fields. Instruction is enhanced by applicable technologies, internships, and other experiential opportunities that are integral to the Business curriculum.

The Business degree will assist graduates in:

  • Pursuing career opportunities in business and non-profit organizations.
  • Contributing in all major functional areas of a business.
  • Recognizing and dealing with issues of ethical and social responsibility in business.
  • Effectively communicating orally and in writing.
  • Applying computers and standard software.
  • Pursuing graduate study in business, law and other fields.
