COB Leadership

Interim Dean, David Chicoine, and Associate Deans Chuck Mason and Kent Drummond make up the leadership team for our College of Business. Collectively, they are working tirelessly to focus our college on the student experience, strengthening the research prowess of our faculty, and recruiting a permanent, long-term Dean by May of 2018.

Their key focus areas also include the advancement of our entrepreneurship and sales initiatives, the development of an honors curriculum and undergraduate research program through our Department of Economics, and the drive towards serving economic needs in the state and region with our Master's degree programs in Accounting, Finance, and Business Administration (MBA).

Read their message here and stay tuned for our new strategic plan.

AACSB Accreditation

Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB accreditation. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools. The University of Wyoming's College of Business is proud to be one of those business schools. AACSB International's accreditation assures quality and promotes excellence and continuous improvement in uAACSBndergraduate and graduate education for business administration. Why should you care that we're AACSB accredited? It means that we have been found by our own business school peers to have a mission appropriate to management education that is accomplished through relevant curricula, qualified faculty, and effective policies and practices. This has been determined through a rigorous self-evaluation and peer review process.

Accreditation by AACSB International shows that our programs satisfy criteria established and accepted by the management education community. This means that both you and your future employer can be sure that your course of study is current and reflects changes in knowledge and practices generally accepted in the management education community. You're also ensured that your studies will guide you in understanding today's complex business environment.

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business requires continuous improvement reviews for their accredited institutions which pushes us to continually be one of the top business schools that has the highest quality faculty, relevant and challenging curriculum, and provides educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools.
