Minors:

We distinguish our business division from our competitors through:

  • Credentialed faculty with real world experience. We recruit professors who bring both academic and professional achievement to the classroom. As a result, all of our full-time faculty members have a doctoral degree in specialty fields — and significant, first-hand experience in the business world.
  • Strong entrepreneurial emphasis. We believe that all successful businesses must be entrepreneurial and for that reason a significant portion of our curricula is devoted to the organization, financing and management of new business ventures.
  • Extensive faculty-student interaction. We think the effectiveness of education is directly dependent on the quantity and quality of time our students spend with their professors. For that reason all of our classes are small to promote active student participation and all student advising is handled by full-time professors.
  • Early student contact with the business world. We want our students to develop meaningful contacts with the business leaders of the world before they graduate. We bring guest speakers to our classrooms and provide internship and mentorship opportunities.
