A Message From Dr. Amjad Abdullat

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, welcome to the Paul and Virginia Engler College of Business at West Texas A&M University! This is an incredibly exciting time here on our campus and in the college, and we invite you to be a part of our welcoming community.

We warmly invite you to join us to achieve excellence and success in a continuously-evolving business environment.  We are proud to offer a business curriculum that empowers our graduates to meet the demands of competitive job markets. We achieve this goal by providing students with a first-class education crafted by a highly-qualified faculty and delivered in a dynamic learn-centered atmosphere.

The Paul and Virginia Engler College of Business offers a comprehensive business curriculum with undergraduate majors in accounting, economics, finance, computer information systems, marketing, management, international business, entrepreneurship and healthcare management. At the graduate level, we offer a Master in Business Administration (MBA) with several emphases, and Master of Science degrees in Computer Information Systems & Business Analytics (MSCISBA), in Finance and Economics (MSFE), and Professional Accounting (MPA).

Our faculty are known for their outstanding research and are recognized for exceptional instruction in the classroom and online. With a learner-center spirit, our faculty provide one-on-one interaction with students. We recognize that a competitive business world demands a responsive and agile business education and we cherish the opportunity to provide our students with the competitive edge they need and deserve.

For the past decade, we have been working toward attaining and continuing our AACSB accreditation. This highly regarded business accreditation, along with our student-centric approach has provided the foundation upon which our undergraduate and graduate programs have achieved high rankings by outlets such as the Princeton Review and the US News and World Report.

Our story here at Paul and Virginia Engler is rich with tradition and reflects our commitment to success. We will always strive to achieve excellence and to work diligently with our stakeholders to sustain our successes and accomplishments. I invite you to explore and learn more about the opportunities our college offers here at WTAMU, not only through our website, but also by visiting our campus and speaking with our faculty, staff, and students.

With a strong foundation, evident in the many accomplishments the College has achieved in recent years, we continue to build and evolve with the needs of our students, our stakeholders, and the broader WTAMU and Panhandle communities.

I invite you to join us in our pursuit of excellence and our drive for distinction!
