What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

I think that Elon's business program provides superior teaching, facilities, and leadership opportunities as compared with other business schools. Elon isn't the best in any one thing, but by being good, or very good at all aspects of the business program, Elon has created a dynamic whereby students in the program get a very well-rounded education and a lot of applicable skills that they can bring to the real-world.
