OUR FACULTY AND STUDENTS
Our faculty are our greatest resource. All of our faculty are qualified -- either by holding a Ph.D. in their field -- or as a recognized business practitioner. They each bring a wealth of knowledge to the classroom, discipline and a variety of research interests. They prepare our students to have a well-rounded education and a skill set that can be applied in many leading industries. Many of the faculty also provide guidance to the student clubs and other student groups thus enriching the out-of-class application of theory.
Our students come from all areas of the world bringing their unique cultural perspectives with them. Combined, we speak more than 50 different first languages! This provides our faculty with a built-in classroom opportunity to enhance the learning environment and emphasize a global perspective through the sharing of the individual student’s cultural distinctiveness.
