Why the UW College of Business? Because business ethics matter.
Standing tall in an upside-down world is no slogan. The UW College of Business is committed to leading through a strict code of business ethics, the Code of the West. And it not just for cowboys! Partnering with the Center for Cowboy Ethics and Leadership, we have developed a successful business ethics leadership program. Internationally accredited through the AACSB -- achieved by fewer than 5 percent of business schools worldwide -- we are housed in a new $54 million facility that combines state-of-the-art technology with world-class design and functionality. The College of Business features three academic departments: Accounting, Economics and Finance, and Management and Marketing. Majors include Accounting, Business Administration, Economics, Finance, Management, and Marketing, and we offer minors in all of these areas, as well as in Banking and Financial Services, Decision Science, Entrepreneurship, International Business and Marketing Communications. UW's graduate-level business programs include Master's degrees in Accounting, Economics, Finance, and an M.B.A., as well as a Ph.D. in Economics and a Ph.D. in Marketing.
