Our graduates are able to redefine business with a global outlook, leadership thinking and innovation focus. Our faculty, students, staff, alumni, and business partners work together to provide our students with extraordinary opportunities. We do this in a very personal way, working with students one at a time. Expert faculty prepare undergraduate and graduate students to become responsible professionals and leaders in a global workforce. Through close ties to the business community, and relationships with hundreds of businesses, we gain insights to create relevant course content and unique degree programs that give students an unmistakable career advantage. Our urban location offers strong internship and professional development programs. Leadership and business communication training, and global experiences extend the classroom. Innovative centers and institutes take students to new levels in leadership, direct interactive marketing, entrepreneurship, professional sales, and global business. The centers provide support for experiential team projects, events with professionals, and faculty research. We know how busy working adults are, but we also know that obtaining a graduate business degree is one of the best investments a person can make in their career. While graduate school is a serious commitment, we are confident we can help them to be successful in the classroom so that success can translate to their career. We have designed flexible, rigorous programs to benefit them and their career – all at a great value.
