Babson Park, Florida

Dr. Charles Shieh, Chief Academic Officer, has announced that Dr. Fred Fening has been promoted from the rank of Associate Professor to the rank of Professor.

Fening joined the Webber Faculty in 2007. He was appointed the Leslie D. Reagin III Chair of Strategic Management in 2009. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2012.

Said Dr. Keith Wade, President and CEO, “this is the highest rank our university has to bestow, and promotion to this rank is taken very, very seriously. Fred’s application for promotion, encompassing many hundreds of pages, evidenced extraordinary teaching, voluminous peer reviewed research, selfless and significant community service, and genuine and substantial contribution to scholarship. After a thorough review by the Committee of Full Professors, the application was reviewed by the Chief Academic Officer and then by me. It’s a rightfully grueling and rigorous process.  To say that this promotion was well earned is an understatement. We are absolutely unapologetic about the bar for promotion being extraordinarily high at Webber.”

Fening holds an MBA in business finance, a Doctor of Business Administration in international business, and an advanced professional graduate certificate in management (doctoral level certification). He is an associate member of the Institute of Cost and Executive Accountants, a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Financial Managers, and an associate member of the Institute of Management. He is also a certified professional consultant from the American Consultants League. He is a regular member of the American Society of Quality, a member of the Academy of International Business, and currently the board chairman of the Ghana Quality Organization.

 

Established in 1927 by Roger Babson as the first college chartered under Florida’s then new charitable and educational laws and one of the first schools of business for women in the nation, Webber International University now educates men and women from over 50 different nations. Students at Webber’s Florida campus major in one of the many disciplines of business offered at the associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s level through traditional day, accelerated night and weekend, and entirely on-line formats.  Joining Webber as a branch campus in 2011, and featuring a comprehensive liberal arts curriculum, St. Andrews University was established by merger in 1961 but traces its roots back to the 1896 founding of its predecessor Flora Macdonald College. The University features highly qualified faculty, highly engaged staff, small class size, and a wide array of intercollegiate sports and other extracurricular activities.  The University has been recognized as a Princeton Review Best in the Southeast College, a US News and World Reports America’s Best Colleges designee, and a GI Jobs America’s Most Military Friendly School. The University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, and several programs have earned additional programmatic accreditations.

Dr Farchmin FAR of the Year

SAN DIEGO, CA. – The NAIA 76th Annual National Convention, featured in beautiful San Diego, California, had a different meaning for Webber International University this year. Dr. Elfie Farchmin, Faculty Athletics Representative for Webber, received the prestigious Wally Schwartz Faculty Athletics Representative of the Year Award.

The NAIA, once a year, recognizes a Faculty Athletic Representative to receive the Wally Schwartz F.A.R Award. The NAIA definition of the award states, “The award honors past Vice-President of Legislative Services, Wally Schwartz, and is given to a Faculty Athletics Representative who exemplifies the loyalty, enthusiasm, and honesty that Wally Schwartz had, and still has, shown on behalf of the NAIA.” Dr. Farchmin of Webber International University has met these requirements and was chosen to receive the award.

Dr. Farchmin was asked how it feels being selected as the 2017 recipient of this award. She said, “It is truly a great accomplishment for a Faculty Athletics Representative. Dr. Schwartz was very instrumental in the development of the eligibility bylaws of the NAIA. The nominees are selected by the Council of Faculty Athletics Representatives, a select group voted on by all F.A.R.’s. I am humbled to receive this honor.”

Darren Richie, Webber International University’s Athletic Director stated, “Dr. Farchmin has served our student-athletes and our coaches at Webber since 2004. Her recognition as the Wally Schwartz F.A.R. of the Year shows her dedication and work ethic, not only to Webber International, but to The Sun Conference and the NAIA. I want to congratulate her and I am looking forward to working closely with her to benefit our student-athletes even more.”

Dr. Farchmin has done a wonderful job as the F.A.R. at Webber International and is also a full-time Sport Business Administration Professor at the University.

Congratulations and thank you to Dr. Elfie Farchmin and President, Dr. Keith Wade, along with the faculty, staff and students at Webber International University on this accomplishment!

For Immediate Release

During their Spring Break, nine Webber students chose to spend some of their vacation time at the Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) Florida State Leadership Conference (SLC) in Orlando, FL. Esmeralda Fernandez, Logan Stewart, Joyce Caba, Carlos Rocha, Jordan Lively, David Szotkowski, Myusei Hagiwara, Brandon Zayhowski, and Jalen Cayo competed in a variety of topics related to business, from Contemporary Sports Issues to Cyber Security to Macroeconomics. Some topics are performance based, some are written exams, and some are a combination of the two. For most of the Webber students, this was their first time competing in a state-level FBLA-PBL competition. Joyce Caba is one of those students. When asked about her experience in FBLA-PBL, Caba said, “I am honored to be a part of the PBL organization at my university. PBL has helped me broaden my business perspective. Through events and competitions, I am able get extra practice and knowledge which I can apply to real world situations. Experience like this is hard to find in classrooms.”

Webber International University is proud to announce that multiple students walked away from the SLC with awards. David Szotkowski, Myusei Hagiwara, and Brandon Zayhowski placed 3rd in Business Decision Making and Jordan Lively placed 4th in Entrepreneurship Concepts. We are confident that the Webber students will continue to excel in future years!

For Immediate Release

Founded on April 6th, 1927 by financial guru, industrialist, and economist Roger Babson (who also founded Babson College in Massachusetts), Webber International University in Babson Park, Florida will be celebrating its 90th anniversary on Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 at noon with an open to the public picnic lunch.

Babson, together with his wife Grace Knight, founded the private, not-for-profit, SACSCOC accredited college as the first school chartered under Florida’s then new educational and charitable laws, and was one of the first colleges of business for women in the nation.

“I sit in Roger Babson’s old office,” said Dr. Keith Wade, Webber’s 12th President & CEO.  “One of my little indulgences is occasionally pulling one of his books off the shelf and reading from a page at random. ‘I am presenting business simply as one of the best means of rendering service today,’ is one of the little gems in his Finding a Job, a 1933 bestselling self-help book for young people, and one of my favorites.  I think we’ve stayed true to that vision, turning out thousands of well-equipped graduates who have provided not only for themselves and their families, but built and led businesses which have fed their communities as well.”

While initially a women’s school, Webber now hosts men and women from over 50 different nations. Degrees at the Florida campus include Accounting, Computer Information Systems Management, Corporate Communications, Finance, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Management, Marketing, Criminal Justice Management, Sport Business Management, General Business Studies, and Elementary Education as well as MBA, MBA with an emphasis in Accounting, MBA with an emphasis in International Business, MBA with an emphasis in Criminal Justice Management, and MBA with an emphasis in Sport Business Management.

Joining Webber as a branch campus in 2011, St. Andrews University (formerly St. Andrews Presbyterian College, Laurinburg, North Carolina) is a comprehensive liberal arts university which traces its roots back to the 1896 founding of its predecessor Flora Macdonald College. Majors at the North Carolina campus include Biology, Business Administration, Communications, Education (Elementary Education with K-6 Licensure, Middle Grades Education, Physical Education with K-12 Licensure, Special Education), English and Creative Writing, Interdisciplinary Studies, Forensic Science, Philosophy and Religious Studies, Social Science, Psychology, Sport and Recreation Studies, Therapeutic Horsemanship, and Visual & Performing Arts. Numerous concentrations exist within these majors.

Each campus features highly qualified faculty, small class size, career focused curriculum, and a wide array of intercollegiate sports and other activities. Recognized as a Princeton Review Best in the Southeast college, a U.S. News and World Report’s America’s Best Colleges designee, and a GI Jobs America’s Most Military Friendly School. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, with additional specialty accreditations.

Mr. Darren Richie has joined Webber International University as its Director of Athletics.

Richie last served at Colorado Christian University. During his nearly ten-year tenure there as Director of Athletics, Mr. Richie raised over 3 million dollars for the athletics department, and led CCU to four RMAC Sportsmanship Cup wins, appearances in 12 NCAA National Tournaments, and appearances in over 30 National Christian College (NCCAA) National Tournaments with four National Championship wins. CCU athletes have maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.2, a bit higher than the school’s non-athletes.  He has, during his career as athletics director, been involved in both NCCAA and NCAA conference, regional, and national committee and leadership work. Prior to serving as Athletics Director, Mr. Richie had a 20-year college and high school coaching career in the sports of basketball, baseball and golf.  Mr. Richie holds a Bachelor of Arts from North Eastern Bible College with a double major in Education and Theology, and a Master of Arts in Education Curriculum and Instruction from Colorado Christian University.   He is married with five grown daughters.

Said Dr. Keith Wade, the University’s President and CEO: “We did a national search which produced nearly 300 applications. We had broad representation on the selection and interview committees including players, coaches, faculty members, association leadership and even former athletics directors.  We were thrilled to have been able to hire Darren – he has vision, he has direction, he has character, and he has a proven track record.  We think we’ve found exactly the right person for the job”.

Mr. Darren Richie had this to say about his newly appointed position: “I am thrilled to be part of the Webber family as I can help lead the athletic department. Bill Heath has done an excellent job over the last decade in leading the Warriors. I want to thank Dr. Wade and the Administrative staff for the honor in serving at Webber International as the new Director of Athletics. We will strive for excellence as we create an great athletic department that serves the Student-Athlete and our community.”

Webber’s intercollegiate sports include baseball(m), basketball, bowling, beach volleyball (w), football (m), golf, soccer, softball (w), tennis, track and field, triathlon, and volleyball. Webber also has a marching band and a cheerleading squad.

Babson Park, Florida

Following a multi-year review period including an exhaustive self-study, the review and verification of thousands of pages of documentation, and comprehensive on-site review visits to the University’s campuses (located 550 miles apart), at its annual meeting in Atlanta on Monday, December 5th, 2016 the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) reaffirmed the accreditation of Webber International University for a ten-year period.

“We’re ecstatic,” said University President & CEO Dr. Keith Wade, who broke the news to faculty and staff over pizza and champagne. “Exhausted, but ecstatic.   Regional accreditation isn’t a quick look under the hood… it’s an exhaustive review of the entire institution.  Obvious stuff like checking faculty’s transcripts to be sure they really took the classes they say they did and verifying the data backing up advertising claims.  And some things you wouldn’t think of either, like reviewing the plan for how you keep student records safe in a fire or hurricane.  It’s a tough review – professional and courteous – but that’s what makes it worthwhile.  Nothing, I believe truly nothing, is a stronger indication of a college or university’s quality than regional accreditation.”

Established in 1927 by Roger Babson as the first college chartered under Florida’s then new charitable and educational laws and one of the first schools of business for women in the nation, Webber International University now educates men and women from over 50 different nations. Students at Webber’s Florida campus major in one of the many disciplines of business offered at the associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s level through traditional day, accelerated night and weekend, and entirely on-line formats.  Joining Webber as a branch campus in 2011, and featuring a comprehensive liberal arts curriculum, St. Andrews University was established by merger in 1961 but traces its roots back to the 1896 founding of its predecessor Flora Macdonald College. The University features highly qualified faculty, highly engaged staff, small class size, and a wide array of intercollegiate sports and other extracurricular activities.  The University has been recognized as a Princeton Review Best in the Southeast College, a US News and World Reports America’s Best Colleges designee, and an America’s Most Military Friendly School. The University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, and several programs have earned additional programmatic accreditations.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges is the recognized regional accrediting body in the eleven U.S. Southern states (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia) and in Latin America for those institutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaureate, master’s or doctoral degrees.

Like most colleges and universities, operating costs at Webber International University in Babson Park, Florida are skyrocketing.  Health insurance premiums have doubled.  From eggs to toilet paper, electricity to milk, costs are up across the board.  You name it and the price has likely gone up.  And, most schools, Webber included, have had little choice but to pass these increased costs along.

So, when the 90 year old small, private, not-for-profit university (with campuses in Babson Park, FL and Laurinburg, NC) today announced its tuition, room, and board rates for the 2017/18 academic year, there was something surprising which you don’t see a lot at colleges and universities today:  a 0% hike.

“We’re not raising tuition a penny next year,” said Dr. Keith Wade, the University’s President & CEO.   “Same for room and board.  Zero change.  Associates, bachelors, MBA, budget dorm, luxury dorm, meal plan, application fee, graduation fee…  zero change for next year.”   Student insurance and books, items whose price the University does not influence, are not included in the freeze.

“The reality is that we’re not a rich school. Tuition, room, board, and help from our friends pay the bills.  We budget at break-even,” said Wade.  “The other reality is that while we are extraordinarily proud of our affordability, our average student debt, and our job placement rates, most of our students and their families are sacrificing a good deal to be here.  That higher education is a good investment doesn’t make it inexpensive.  So this seemed like the right thing to do.  We’re a 501(c)(3), so we’ll do a bit more fundraising.  We’re a business school, so we’ll find some ways to cut a few costs and run a little leaner.  We’ll make it work.”

Webber has guaranteed 2016/2017 tuition, room, and board pricing for the 2017/2018 academic year for returning students who finalize their registration before leaving summer vacation, and for new and transfer students whose enrollment is complete by July 31st, 2017.  As is always the case, the student’s ultimate net cost of attendance is based upon a number of factors, so the University recommends filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Loan as soon as it opens on October 1st, 2016.

Webber International University, Babson Park, Florida, announced today that it would make special efforts to welcome displaced ITT students into the University.
 
“We realize that most of these students got caught mid-education,” said Dr. Keith Wade, President & CEO of Webber International University.  “Our goal is to take as many of their credits, and make their transition to Webber as painless as we possibly can.”
 
Webber’s Florida campus, established in 1927, focuses exclusively on business with a wide variety of business majors at the undergraduate level and a number of concentrations within its MBA program.  The North Carolina campus, established in 1896, has a broad array of liberal arts and sciences at the undergraduate level as well as an MBA.  Each campus has both on-line degrees, and night and weekend programs designed exclusively for working adults.

Webber International University PBL Sigma Chi Chapter

Places in National Competitions of Business Knowledge and Skills

Babson Park, Florida

For Immediate Release

Having made strong showings at the State competition, two International University students placed in the top ten at the FBLA-PBL National Leadership Conference held last week in Atlanta. These competitions test student knowledge and skills in a total of 53 specialized business subjects through examinations, projects, presentations and other competitions.

Over 2,000 of the nation’s top business students made the trip to the national competitions, having earned their way there through successes at district, regional, and state competitions. Phillip Friedman placed 7th in the nation in the Marketing Analysis and Decision Making competition. Logan Stewart placed 8th in the nation in the Forensic Accounting competition. While Webber has fewer than 1,000 students, PBL does not have “divisions”, meaning that these wins were made in the face of competition from much, much larger schools from around the nation. Mrs. Devyn Montalvo, Director of Career Services & Community Outreach, who accompanied the students, remarked that Logan only had overnight and Phillip only had 20 minutes to prepare their winning cases.

Additionally, while unable to attend this conference because she was accompanying MBA students working on an international project in the Netherlands, long term PBL Advisor Dr. Jeanette Eberle, Professor of Finance, received an Outstanding Local Chapter Advisor Award.

University President Dr. H. Keith Wade said “how we best equip our graduates to excel in an increasingly competitive business climate quite literally permeates our every decision, our every discussion, indeed our every thought at Webber. So when our students go out and show what they are truly capable of, it is both very gratifying and very humbling. We couldn’t be prouder.”
