Believe in your dreams. Broaden your horizons. Achieve your goals.

Washburn's faculty and staff are committed to preparing you for success, so you can reach your dreams and goals for the future business world. Our students enjoy small class sizes, which allows them to have individual time with faculty and bond with fellow students.  

The Washburn Business faculty is comprised of a wide variety of experienced business professionals and full-time professors – all with the highest degrees in their field.

Once you're here, you'll have access to the latest business database and software resources and have opportunities that include managing an actual equities portfolio, completing internships and traveling and working overseas.  It's no wonder our graduating seniors consistently place in the top 20th percentile on the national ETS Major Field Test in business.

Bizbod Testimonial

"Receiving instruction from the Washburn Business faculty allowed genuine and personal relationships to develop while receiving intensive instruction in my courses.  Moreover, the relationships I developed with classmates were nurtured and sustained by the School's strong support for professional student organizations.  I may not work in accounting for the entirety of my professional career, but I feel the Washburn School of Business has prepared me for success in any field."
