Wooster Recognized by University of Michigan Business School Magazine. The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania also follows Wooster's I.S. Model. According to Dividend, the magazine of the University of Michigan School of Business (Spring 2003, p. 28), their "Senior Seminar" is modelled after the IS program at the College of Wooster. The magazine goes on to cite Wooster as, "...a national leader in providing undergraduate students with an in-depth research experience..." and says that the Wharton School will introduce a similar program shortly.  Wooster has also been selected as a partner in the Simon Business School's Early Leaders Program.

The Economics Department with its options in Economics and Business Economics is the third largest Department at the College of Wooster as measured by the number of students who have chosen to major with us. We are proud of our comprehensive program and encourage you to obtain more information about the Department and its offerings.

Just for Fun...

An accountant walks into a pizzeria and orders a pizza.

When the pizza is done and he goes to the counter to pick it up, the clerk asks, "Should I cut it into six or eight pieces?"

The accountant replies, "Eight please. I'm rather hungry today."

The Economist joke page has something for everyone. Enjoy!
