CBT's 50th Anniversary Celebration

The College of Business and Technology is celebrating fifty years of success! In 1965, the Board of Governors approved the creation of the School of Business at Western Illinois University. The School officially opened its doors on September 1, 1966. Since that day, the School has grown, first evolving into the College of Business and then into the present day College of Business and Technology.
