The mantra of the School of Business at Baldwin Wallace University is “Learn by doing.”

In the classroom, this means that BW faculty go beyond books and lectures to focus on real-world application. Outside the classroom, we extend our Learn by doing philosophy by connecting talented students to businesses and organizations throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond.
