The Williams School of Commerce, Economics and Politics
The Williams School
Established in 1905, the Williams School of Commerce, Economics and Politics is distinct among its peers--offering a business education within a larger liberal arts curriculum. In fact, Washington and Lee is the only top tier liberal arts college in the United States to claim a nationally accredited commerce school. The Williams School has been fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) since 1927. Student outcomes for Washington and Lee University are available from The Office of Institutional Effectiveness.
The school is led by Crawford Family Dean Rob Straughan and has 50 full-time faculty members who teach in the departments of accounting, business administration, economics and politics, as well as a number of interdisciplinary programs such as environmental studies, poverty and human capability studies and women's and gender studies. The Williams School is the proud home to the Connolly Center for Entrepreneurship.
