Why Invest?

Students graduate from the W. Frank Barton School of Business ready to work – to take on challenges, deliver solutions and exceed expectations. That’s the Barton Edge – an educational vision that brings students, faculty and business together to create an applied learning experience unmatched in our region.

This vision is a win for our students, our business community and the economy they drive together. And just as every business enterprise wants the best and brightest employees, the Barton School strives to attract the best and brightest students.

A new facility that provides the collaborative setting students require to prepare them for today’s careers will enhance our ability to attract the best students and keep them in the region after graduation. This facility is the top priority in the WSU Foundation’s Shock the World campaign, with half of the funds to be raised privately.

Why should you invest? To help the Barton School keep pace with an increasingly complex world, providing career-ready graduates to enhance businesses competitiveness, drive entrepreneurship and inspire innovation.
