Weatherhead School of Management

Case Western Reserve business students are creative problem-solvers on a fast track to leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Our programs in Accounting, Economics, Finance, and Marketing overlay quantitative prowess with the creative and fluid mindset required for global success. We graduate powerful communicators who thrive on cross-disciplinary teams and projects. Multiple strengths make us a top choice for undergraduate business studies: inventive programs; small class sizes; an emphasis on business communication skills; exceptional internship opportunities; and an internationally prominent faculty.

What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

The small class sizes - I have not had a professor in the business school who has not known me by name. Also, the quality of professors. Our top tier professors are really incredibly invested in the growth of their students. Last, the opportunity to have an impact on student organizations. Our campus is small enough that if you have the desire to get involved there is opportunity for you to do so, and have a big impact on the campus while doing it.
