Our professors are leaders in their field, with outstanding academic credentials and highly relevant  experiences both in and out of the classroom. More than half of our students will come from countries outside the United States, adding to the international character of the classroom. Our global network is strong, vibrant and growing. Graduates leave the school with lifelong contacts, an appreciation of business responsibility to community and society, and a recognition and understanding of the multicultural context of today's business world.
