Bringing in external real-world business leaders and experts into our students’ learning experience, while also initiating sophisticated mentorship, internship, and post-graduation job opportunities.

Experienced Faculty

Our business faculty have an average of 25+ years of business experience to complement their teaching experience. This gives our faculty invaluable, real-world perspective to share with our students from their time with Big 4 accounting firms, Fortune 500 corporations, small businesses, and entrepreneurial start-ups.

I have the opportunity to not just be in a caring community, but a community that fosters the same values and faith. There are so many different perspectives here from students and professors, and it creates so many opportunities to grow.
