About the University Of La Verne College of Business and Public Management

The mission of the College of Business and Public Management is to provide our
undergraduate and graduate business students with a broad-based management education
that emphasizes the application of theory to management practice and builds conceptual
skills and core values needed to become effective leaders and managers in today's rapidly
changing global business environment.

We support this mission by providing relevant curriculum that capitalizes on our liberal arts
traditions, focuses on effective decision-making, and emphasizes the knowledge, skills, and
values needed in a culturally diverse workplace. In addition, we are committed to
continuous quality improvement, applied scholarly pursuits, and sharing our resources with
the business, professional, and academic communities.

As a business school, we value a strong commitment to our business students and to their
success both personally and academically. As a major within the College of Business and
Public Management, you will find a caring faculty and staff, small class sizes, and a lot of
personal attention from the faculty, both in and out of the classroom. We take pride in
providing an environment for our students to succeed.

The College of Business and Public Management offers both undergraduate and graduate
business programs and we have many success stories to share with you. We have an
excellent reputation within the business community and our business alumni can be found
in all types of organizations including local Southern California businesses, large national
and international organizations, entrepreneurial oriented enterprises and government and
non-profit agencies.

The college has a prominent full-time faculty with strong academic credentials and diverse
business backgrounds, as well as part-time faculty who are active practitioners in their
fields and who hold appropriate academic credentials. In addition, we receive guidance
from a Business Advisory Board of distinguished business and professional leaders. This
insures that employers find in ULV graduates the skills and training needed in today's
competitive, global business environment.

About The Center For Strategic Thinking

One of the cornerstones of the College’s strategic plan is to identify the educational and on-
site support needs within the business and professional communities in order to develop a
visible distinguished outreach center that addresses those needs.  Hence, the launch of The
Center for Strategic Thinking.  

The goals of the Center are twofold.  First, to offer public and customized educational
programs, workshops, and on-site support to satisfy the needs of business, government
and non-profit organizations in the areas of strategic thinking, strategic planning and other
strategic-related issues. Second, to engage selected College students in the Center’s on-
site support activities to supplement their traditional textbook method by giving them more
opportunities to work directly with regional businesses, faculty, staff, alumni, and partners
from both private and public sectors.

The objectives of the Center are to: (1) increase the awareness of the College in the
business and professional communities; (2) foster the advancement of strategic planning
and strategic thinking; (3) provide education, research and on-site support to the business
and professional communities; (4) utilize College faculty, staff, alumni, and partners from
both private and public enterprise to deliver quality programs; (5) generate a positive cash
flow; (6) promote other College programs and initiatives; and (7) attract sponsorships to
the College from the business and professional communities.
