College of Business and Economics

 

Dear readers,

Welcome to the Wolaita Sodo University (WSU) and to the College of Business and Economics (CoBE). The College of Business and Economics is not the same faculty of business and economics it was 10, 7 or five years ago, or even three years ago when I arrived at Wolaita Sodo University. It is a college on the rise, and it reflects an environment where we are helping to mold successful students every day through innovative education and invaluable, learning-by-doing opportunities.

Our college experts research a broad range of topics that provide insights into new ways of thinking and learning for business and society. Our college and professional staff’s skills, knowledge and commitment combine to enrich the student learning experience.

The CoBE educates more than 5,000 students annually in 08 undergraduate degree programs, and three master’s programs through four academic departments (Accounting and Finance, Economics, Management, and Public Administration and Development Management). We continue to improve our classroom and beyond-the-classroom experiences for our students.

Based on needs identified from the consultative meeting with the University’s catchment areas’ stakeholders (Wolaita and Dawuro zones), the college of business and economics is in its curriculum approval stage to launch BA degree program in Hospitality and Tourism Management, and BA degree program in Marketing Management on the next academic year.

The college has the mission of being provider of quality education in the fields of business and economics. It is composed of four departments which were supported by innovative curriculums.
