IE Universities Bullish about Business Education

This week we covered how four Inland Empire universities are betting big time on their business schools, from UC Riverside and CSUSB to the University of La Verne to California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

In a related story, we covered the news about University of La Verne’s new business school in Ontario city. Per details, the University struck a land-swapping deal with The City Council of Ontario to make a business school in Ontario, CA. The business school will be called “Randall Lewis Center for Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Social Impact”.

A Different Workforce
