WSB University authorities, students and graduates

Our University is, above all, made up of people. It is their enthusiasm, energy and dedication that get things going and make everyone enjoy being here. It is so rewarding to watch students spread their wings and learn to fly: see them achieve their educational goals, and then embark on their professional careers. They feel at home. They just want to be here and wish to be part of it.

Authorities

Rector, Chancellors, and Deans. Mostly too busy, they seem to have seven hectic days per week, but when you bump into them in a hallway or passage, they keep smiling and are always willing to help. They are the ones who make sure that the University works fine at all times, wins top places in prestigious contests and rankings, and fosters excellent relationships with employers (or, for that matter, with the local business environment at large). They approve study programs and make decisions on key investments. They must be present at each important ceremony. After all, would anyone imagine celebrating inauguration or graduation without the Rector’s red robe, his broad smile, and his inevitable speech?

 

Krzysztof Kandefer, Rector and Karol Cyrulik, Chancellor. Always very busy and absorbed because they engage so much in the development of the university. They look after new investments and are factually responsible for interesting and modern study programs. Without them it would not be possible to hold any formal ceremony or event. It is hard to imagine any opening ceremony or graduation ceremony without the Rector’s academic gown, smile, and speech.

Faculty

They are partners, counsels, and mentors. Some of them will be remembered for a lifetime, because they have become true life coaches, guiding students’ careers and influencing personal development paths. Helpful and outgoing, but often firm and demanding, too. They can see that it is not just about exam success rates, they realize that what really counts is the students’ understanding of what they are doing, what they are learning and how this learning can work for them in their lives and in their jobs. Far from arrogant, they keep their minds open to what their students can tell them about the latest trends and innovative solutions.

WSB University in Warsaw is a friendly institution whose activities are based on professionalism and partnership. Our study programs are designed and developed in line with the most recent knowledge trends in a particular discipline. We also make sure that our programs are consulted with our business and institutional partners. We place emphasis on partner relations with our students. Our ambition is to educate employees and managers of the 21st century who are able to face the challenges of the competitive labor market.

Students

This is the largest and most diverse group. It is them that get the authorities and the faculty going. They make the campus a colorful and noisy place. Their energy and enthusiasm are contagious, and each of them embodies an interesting story and a potential to discover, each is a unique individual and someone to learn from. It is for them, or thanks to them, that the faculty keep working on new solutions to problems, inventing new approaches to instruction, writing books, and hoarding experiences to share. It is the students’ involvement, their success and failure stories, and their passions, that energize the University’s walls and contribute to the making of its amazing climate.

Administrative personnel

They are always there, working hard behind the scenes: service staff. The good guys, true heroes cast in supporting roles. You will find them nearly everywhere, whether it is the Dean’s, the Careers Office, the Library, the canteen, or the cloakroom. They are the busy ones in front and back offices who make sure that every small detail clicks in its place. Who see that things happen – everything that needs to happen to give you a good education and a pleasurable study experience. We owe it to their effort that the University shows up at educational fairs, our library collection has been expanding all the time, the hardware and software in the computer labs is working, and lights are on in the restrooms. And, last but not least, their quiet presence means that there is somewhere to leave your coats and stuff or have a hot meal during breaks.
