Dean’s Welcome

Emmeline de Pillis PortraitAt the College of Business and Public Management, you will discover  a relevant, distinctive, and transformational experience that addresses your educational needs and helps you develop professionally.

Our curriculum encourages you to apply what you learn in the classroom to real life situations. Through the use of simulations, case studies, consulting, and/or the creation of their own organizations, our students are encouraged to use their knowledge of multiple disciplines to solve complex problems and achieve organizational objectives.

Employers want people who can solve problems, innovate, communicate, are ethical, and embrace diversity. That is what our programs address. Our graduates have a strategic understanding of the functional areas of their discipline, can lead and institute change, and use technology to promote organizational objectives.

Our extra-curricular activities and services will help you develop your leadership and professional skills. The Center for Career and Professional Development will provide you the training, coaching, and connections to successfully launch your career at or before graduation.

The academic quality of our courses, the convenience of our schedules, and, more importantly, the commitment of our faculty and staff, make our programs some of the most popular in Southern California.

I hope you seriously consider pursuing your degree at the University of La Verne’s College of Business and Public Management. It is an investment that will reward you for a lifetime.
