College of Business

Our students graduate with the ability to critically assess a company and its challenges, and to generate creative solutions that are grounded in business principles. Equally important, our business students increase their understanding of the global business community and become more attuned to market trends and thus entrepreneurial opportunities.
When you enroll in the College of Business, you can expect to refine your communication skills, particularly in making presentations and leading group discussions. While all classes include a lecture component, a high level of student participation and case study analyses are the hallmarks of our business programs.

Why study TESOL?
Many Westcliff University students pursue their MA TESOL because they want a career helping others. Children and adults alike have more opportunities when they speak fluent English, and our TESOL graduates find tremendous personal satisfaction in teaching ESL.
Other TESOL students are attracted to the prospect of living and working abroad. Teaching ESL in another country can be exciting and fun; you will find that many of our professors have found this experience immensely rewarding.
Still other TESOL students find that our curriculum helps them reach the students they already have: in today’s multicultural classroom, it is common for K-12 teachers to work with ELL students. When you enroll in the MA TESOL program, you will learn methods and strategies that address the challenges of language acquisition.
Our curriculum, whether taught via an online or hybrid platform, is comprehensive and innovative. At Westcliff University, you’ll develop your critical thinking and writing skills, conduct linguistic analysis, and learn the latest in curriculum development using up-to-the-minute education technology. Equally important, our TESOL programs embrace diversity and recognize the value of heritage languages and cultures.
