Mission Statement

The Jack Welch College of Business (WCOB) mission is to foster a continuous and inquisitive learning community rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, to provide students with business knowledge and appropriate skills, and to develop undergraduate and graduate students prepared to achieve their personal and professional goals in the business community and global society.

Who We Are

Our learning community includes faculty members who are teachers, scholars, and experienced professionals supported by administrative staff members, undergraduate and graduate business students, alumni, and members of companies and organizations who provide employment, internships, and advice.

What We Value

Rooted in the Catholic intellectual tradition, we value scholarship as contributing to learning, understanding, and the search for truth. We stress the primacy of teaching as the focus of our work and value active, engaging, and personalized learning experiences in and outside of the classroom. We believe personal attention fosters the growth and development of our students, and strive to develop individuals who will act ethically and responsibly. We find strength in the rich diversity of the human family and invite participation in our community by persons of varied races, faith traditions, ethnic backgrounds, and diverse opinions and beliefs. We value academic excellence in all of our programs.

What We Do

To fulfill our mission, we teach and advise students. We foster academic rigor. We emphasize ethical dimensions in our curricula, promote active participation by students in the learning process, include experiential learning, and incorporate appropriate technology and teaching techniques in our classes. As faculty, we engage in research to understand and contribute to the development of our discipline, its practice, and the ways in which it is taught. We partner with the business community to improve practice and align our curricula to evolving business needs, and also work collaboratively to ensure that students develop an awareness of and appreciation for the resources and expertise available to them from the faculty and Sacred Heart University community. We give service to our college, university, profession, and the wider community, and emphasize to our students the importance and intrinsic rewards of being good citizens and the responsibilities of being educated persons.
