Outstanding Faculty & Academic and Professional Growth

Our highly qualified, dedicated faculty understand what is required to
educate today’s students to become tomorrow’s business leaders. The faculty
have extensive professional business experience and value the importance
of bringing current world issues into the classroom, while challenging
our students to reach new heights through personal discovery. The
programs focus on an integrative learning environment that gives students
opportunities for academic and professional development in and out of the
classroom.

Students are afforded many opportunities for academic and professional
growth. Each major in the School of Business has at least one studentled
professional organization. Students have opportunities to learn from
others in addition to the faculty. Through programs like study abroad,
supplemental instruction, tutoring, student organizations, internships, and
independent study, students can develop and practice their skills beyond
what they learn in the classroom.
