Professors with doctoral degrees in their disciplines and three executive-in-residence faculty members share a commitment to excellence in teaching and research. Most are regular consultants for national and international businesses. Many have made the shift from business into teaching bringing a wealth of experience, which informs their ability to present theory and demonstrate its realistic application.
