Case Western Reserve University
Think beyond the possible.
From rigorous coursework in management disciplines to hands-on learning experiences to vibrant city living, a Case Western Reserve University education prepares Management students to become distinguished academics, savvy leaders, and productive global citizens.
The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve offers undergraduate academic programs in Accounting, Business Management, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Business, Leadership, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management in addition to a customizable Business Studies program. What’s more, CWRU students are admitted to the University as a whole—rather than individual schools or majors—giving them the flexibility to study across the spectrum of academic programs
In their first year, Business students take core courses in accounting, economics, globalization, entrepreneurship, and more. Learning critical business skills early allows students to compete for highly regarded internships as early as the summer after their first year, resulting in 99% of CWRU Business students completing at least one internship before graduation.
In the Action Learning capstone, CWRU Business students work in teams to analyze the challenges and opportunities facing organizations like FedEx and the Cleveland Clinic and showcase the concrete research and sound business counsel in a final presentation. Because being an effective leader requires significant self-awareness, Management students are compelled to take a good look at themselves, completing a wide-ranging assessment of their leadership competencies, values, and career preferences.
CWRU offers an ecosystem of support for budding entrepreneurs, and with resources like Sears think[box]—the largest invention center at any university in the nation—and the expertise available through the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship, LaunchNet, and IP Venture Clinic, students can access training, funding, legal counsel, and more to start their own businesses before they even graduate.

Case Western Reserve University students are serious about success—and every facet of the CWRU experience is geared toward equipping them with the knowledge and skills that’ll allow them to become 21st-century leaders in their fields. Ninety-nine percent of CWRU students participate in experiential learning during their undergraduate careers. Among Science and Engineering majors, learning outside the classroom commonly takes place throughout Cleveland and around the world through internships, co-ops, research endeavors, and service learning. That dedication pays off, as within three months of graduation, 95% of students are accepted to graduate or professional school, employed full-time, or pursuing other personal or educational interests such as community service or travel.
