What Recent Grads Say See All 5 Comments >

The school has world class faculty who trained at the finest programs or worked in top companies. Our class size is quite small relative to other schools and we reap the benefits of knowing our professors well and having them available to help us along the way. A terrific classroom experience. Additionally, our small class size promotes a very tight community.
