We see Illinois Wesleyan as a unique place: studying professional programs in a liberal
arts setting. This mix gives our students a foundation in technical skills, theory
and practice, while preparing them to devise new solutions to problems, think critically
and communicate clearly and effectively.
Mission Statement: In the liberal arts tradition, the School of Business and Economics at Illinois Wesleyan University produces socially responsible graduates who are prepared to contribute to and have an impact in the global economy. We accomplish this through an experiential, innovative, and flexible curriculum that is guided and implemented by a professionally and academically engaged faculty. These faculty work closely with students providing them the analytical and technical knowledge necessary to succeed in their careers. Coupled with an emphasis on communication and critical thinking skills, this enables them to become strong ethical leaders and excel in a diverse, ever-changing world and business climate.
