Founded in 1916, UW-Eau Claire continues to build its national reputation based on the achievements of its students and faculty. As one of the Midwest's top public universities, UW-Eau Claire provides students with small classes led by talented professors, cutting-edge programs, hands-on research and life-enhancing study abroad opportunities. Add to that a safe and friendly campus community and beautiful surroundings (from rivers and bike trails to shopping and entertainment), and you've got one exceptional place.

We prepare UW-Eau Claire business students for success by giving them the skills and knowledge they need to help build an ethical and prosperous global economy. We do this by developing in them the communication, technology, and teamwork skills to lead beneficial change.

  • COB students learn the value of giving back to the community by complete a minimum of 30 hours of service-learning prior to graduation.
  • 28% of all UW-Eau Claire students studying abroad were from the College of Business.
  • UW-Eau Claire COB students take more oral and written communication courses than business students at most other business schools. Of special note are our highly popular advanced business communication certificate and Student Professional Development Program.
