WJU Launches School of Business




Rocklin, CA - William Jessup University will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly formed School of Business on Tuesday, October 18 beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the Shaw Courtyard.
 
"The demand for highly-competent, principled business leaders continues to grow and the establishment of the School of Business enables William Jessup University to meet this need," said Roger Salstrom, Dean of the newly formed School. "The School of Business will help WJU become the leader in our region for quality, relevant and ethical undergraduate, graduate and professional business education."
 
Jessup's Business Department started in 2004 with a small number of students in the traditional undergraduate program. Since that time, the department has experienced continued growth and is currently the largest major on campus. In addition, the business degree program is one of the most popular selections for students enrolled in the School of Professional Studies, a program geared for working adults.
 
Jessup's Business program prepares students for effective service as Christian leaders in the world while emphasizing Christian principles and training on theoretical and practical aspects of management and leadership. At the undergraduate level, students are taught to be trusted business professionals through a challenging academic experience, a community-focused internship program and a biblically based Christian foundation.
 
Last May, the growing university rolled out a new MBA program allowing students flexibility to attend a series of courses meeting one night a week over a seven-week period. Students can complete the program in two years through evening courses to encourage full-time business professionals to earn their graduate degree in business administration.
 
During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Salstrom will announce a new MBA offering at William Jessup University's School of Professional Studies Bay Area campus located in San Jose, Calif.
 
Salstrom earned his Ph.D. in Operations Management from UC Berkeley and brings areas of expertise to his new role including department management, curriculum development, faculty governance, financial analysis, budget and control as well as developing ties with industry.
