Faculty shouldn't just theorize, they should execute.
A program faculty that provides real world insights, a strong theoretical base, and applied learning opportunities will create a solid foundation for your business future.
"It's important for professors to have their own real world experience so that they can provide their students with a well-rounded education that goes beyond just what's in a textbook. Their insight into the field can help prepare students for the future and ensure they fully understand what to expect once they are working in that same field." -Jessica Lyons of educational-portal.com
