Dean’s Message – Office of the Dean
The College of Business at Westcliff University is like no other that I have experienced in my years teaching management classes and developing business curriculum. When you come to study Business Administration, you are joining an educational community that looks outward as much as it looks inward.
Our professors are working professionals who teach in their areas of expertise. Many have started their own successful consulting practices after earning their degrees and working for name-brand organizations. Others are senior managers in marketing, finance, operations, and information technology. All regularly seek to improve and further develop the classes they teach and proactively work to do more for their students.
Westcliff University seeks regular input from local and California state employers regarding their priorities when hiring. The College of Business takes this feedback regarding skills, knowledge, and experience and incorporates it directly into its curriculum. In addition, we regularly offer new workshops to better serve our undergraduate and graduate students.
When you come to Westcliff University, you are engaging in a partnership with the faculty and your fellow students, who come from a variety of professional backgrounds and bring their work experience directly into the classroom. When you leave Westcliff University, you graduate with a solid foundation in business principles and a practical understanding of how the business world works.
Just as I have found this a remarkable place to work and study, I believe you will too.
Dr. George Sayegh,
D.B.A., Information Systems,
