DEAN'S WELCOME

Dirk Baldwin

Welcome to the College of Business, Economics, and Computing (CBEC) at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. The programs offered in the college are designed to foster and enhance the managerial and technical skills of our students.  These skills are crucial in today's highly competitive business and technological world. 

We are committed to teaching excellence, scholarly research, and public service.  At the same time, we maintain a focus of excellence that keeps the student firmly in mind. This allows us to provide classes that are smaller than those at larger universities.  As a result, our students have a higher level of access to their professors, all of whom are full-time teaching or practicing professionals.

All our programs provide students with a professional, intellectually stimulating, challenging, and enjoyable experience, and upon graduation a high degree of employability in a variety of exciting and rewarding careers.  We look forward to providing you the opportunity to enrich your prospects for a successful future.
