Welcome to The Business School at Worcester Polytechnic Institute!
More than 70 years ago, we conferred our first degrees in Management because we recognized the power of business and technology. Today, we are here because that integration is more important than ever. At The Business School we develop technically minded students into adaptive leaders who use business acumen and technology to innovate, creating sustainable solutions that deliver globally responsible impact. Allow me to expound.
We develop technically minded students. WPI is a world-leading global polytechnic. Our students are emerging technologists and scientists preparing to change the world. Through the application of business, we give technological know-how focus and direction. Leveraging theory and practice, our students are prepared to apply their learning with laser-like precision.
We train adaptive leaders who use business acumen and technology to innovate. Leaders motivate people to adaptively learn to make progress on confronting challenges. The business acumen that our students gain transforms them into leaders with an expansive, adaptive capacity to understand complex environments, then harness technology to be catalysts for change.
We create sustainable solutions that deliver globally responsible impact. At The Business School, we recognize business as an engine for social good and a mechanism to make a difference in the world. Through project-based experiential learning, our students create equitable, just, regenerative solutions needed to serve communities, economies, and industries, while sustainably restoring our environment.
This is what we deliver at The Business School, and we invite you to learn more about us. Our distinctive programs, world-class faculty, leading-edge research, and the best and brightest students offer a compelling combination that you will not find elsewhere.
