Professor Yvonne Widenor and Dr. Sue Margulis spent spring break in Germany with 15 students enrolled in FAH273, a zoo and museum experience.

The group visited the Hagenbeck Tierpark, the Berlin Zoo, Zoo Leipzig, Museum Island, the Berlin Wall, and many other sites in Berlin. We enjoyed a photo opp at Zoo Leipzig with the zoo’s mascot!

Wehle Graduate Business Programs Rank Among Best in Nation

Canisius University scored high marks on U.S. News & World Report’s 2024 list of “Best Graduate Schools.” U.S. News ranks the Richard J. Wehle School of Business among the top graduate business programs in the nation, and as the No. 1 private business school in Western New York.

Canisius was ranked in the top 25 percent of this elite group of AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) programs. Contributing significantly to Canisius’ ranking was the 95 percent employment rate for Wehle graduates three months after their degree, and strong recruiter assessment scores.

“We are extremely proud of these national rankings,” said Shawn O’Rourke, PhD, dean of the Wehle School of Business. “These outstanding rankings are a reflection of the high standards of our curriculum and the expertise and dedication of our business faculty.”

Accredited by the AACSB, the Wehle School of Business is among fewer than five percent of business schools worldwide that have earned this accreditation, which is a symbol of the highest standard in business education.

The Wehle School develops career-ready business leaders who are prepared to make ethical business decisions that reflect the interests of multiple stakeholders.  With its partners in the Western New York business community, the school’s academic programs emphasize immersive, experienced-based learning activities reflective of the interconnected and global nature of business.
