West Tennessee Business College is committed to providing high-quality and relevant career training for its students. In order to accomplish this mission, the College adapts its academic programs to the changing demands of the business environment and to the individual's needs. This responsiveness to both the business community and to the student population results in a progressive educational atmosphere where students can equip themselves with the tools to be successful in the workplace. This has been our goal for many years since our establishment in 1888, and will remain so into the future.
We change lives, one student at a time! Our objectives are: To assist all students in achieving a high level of occupational skills, to develop understanding of the subject matter in an area of specialization, to instill in each student the desire for a lifetime of continued learning, to keep the programs flexible enough to be adaptable to the varying abilities and career preferences of students, to create an atmosphere of good fellowship favorable to the development of personality and leadership.
Throughout the year, the college sponsors various activities for our students and our community. To name a few:
Red Nose Day - WTBC purchases noses from Walgreens to help under priviledged children.
CPR Classes - periodically throughout the year, we host CPR certification classes.
Community Blood Drives - Faculty, staff, and students donate blood to meet the needs of the community. The blood mobile comes on campus.
Military Care Packages - during times of deployment, faculty, staff, and students collect items needed for our military while overseas.
WTBC maintains a diverse student body. Among our enrolled, full-time students in the last year, male students represented 6% of our student body, females constituted 94% of our student body, self-identified members of a major racial or ethnic group comprised 53% of our attendees, and 91% were Pell Grant recipients.
