Best for the World
It's been said it wouldn't be New Year's if we didn't have regrets. But as 2009 fades into 2010, the only regret at the SBT is not having more time. We need more time to hear our alumni's stories of success, more time to share with our students their dreams for the future and more time to highlight our future plans with faculty that ensure the highest quality of learning for those in our Webster World.
Throughout 2010, we're going to take the time needed to share these ideas and visions with you. They come from our alumni in London and our students in Vienna. They come from our faculty in Geneva and our graduates in The Netherlands. Wherever Webster is, there is a SBT story of success, dreams and growth.
Join us as we explore why the SBT is striving to be "The Best for The World." You won’t regret it.
