The Westcliff College of Business offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business Administration. Both the BBA and MBA degrees are meant for working professionals who want to further their careers in business, whether they are pursuing jobs in management or wish to become business owners themselves.
The cornerstone of a Westcliff University business degree is the development of analytical reasoning skills that are immediately applicable to the real world. Our students graduate with the ability to critically assess a company and its challenges, and to generate creative solutions that are grounded in business principles. Equally important, our business students increase their understanding of the global business community and become more attuned to market trends and thus entrepreneurial opportunities.
When you enroll in the College of Business, you can expect to refine your communication skills, particularly in making presentations and leading group discussions. While all classes include a lecture component, a high level of student participation and case study analyses are the hallmarks of our business programs.
