At the Odette School of Business we are committed to a very hands-on approach to education. We believe that our students learn by doing and engaging with our faculty. This philosophy is woven into the fabric of all of our programs and extra-curricular activities. We have a group of faculty who are leading researchers in their fields and who are committed to engaging students not only in their research, but with real word experiences that supplement the traditional classroom experience.
Students quickly discover that education is not just about taking classes. The complete Odette Experience focuses on academics but also personal growth and career preparation. While our faculty takes the lead in academics, our region’s business community plays key supporting roles in helping students learn beyond the classroom. We also offer students numerous opportunities to join clubs and to take on independent studies working closely with professors and professionals.
