Educate through experience
Understanding fundamental business concepts is at the core of business education. We provide a foundation as solid as the rock on which we’re built while also offering ongoing support to the next generation of leaders, managers, entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs.
In this fast-paced entrepreneurial world, students need to not only understand core business theories, but they must also know when and how to use them. We’re dedicated to educating students, bringing our research results to the classroom and translating them into business practice, and providing students with opportunities to apply what they’ve learned in the real world.
By leveraging our external partnerships, we provide our students with both an education and an experience enriches our world.
