Greetings!  As we kick off the spring semester, I want to share some good news about student and faculty achievements, and invite you to attend any of our spring activities and events.  

We pulled off the biggest National Sales Challenge competition ever in November 2012 while attracting 32 universities from across the country, including two from Europe and more than 200 attendees.  Our recently concluded Pharma Sales 3.0 conference generated considerable excitement as panelists kicked off an interesting discussion about a roadmap for the pharmaceutical industry in a digital age.

Our students finished third place in the recently concluded Society of Financial Service Professionals industry issues competition in San Antonio. This marks the fifth top three finishes by our teams in the last three years of participation in national financial planning competitions. Interestingly, our Financial Planning program was also featured as one of the top 25 programs in the Hispanic Outlook magazine. Click here to view the article. 

Our MBA program was voted among the top 296 programs in the country by Princeton Review for the fifth consecutive year!  We are in the process of developing new delivery formats to meet the diverse needs of our student population.

Our first Sharing Information on Progress report (available at describes our ongoing commitment to ethical business education, transparency, and accountability.  

We have an exciting roster of events for the spring featuring luminaries such as Mr. Carlos Rodriguez, CEO of ADP, Inc., Dr. Richard Guarasci, President Warner College, UN representatives, Trade Consuls, senior executives, and expert faculty. Attendance is free for all WPU alum.
