The faculty really cares about the students and how we are doing in class. Because class sizes are smaller teachers know each student individually. Professors will take the time to help you with anything you need and are aware of how each student is doing in their class.
I believe more course offerings, especially in economics, would make our business school more competitive and reach a higher tier of learning. Though most of the typical courses are available, specialty upper-level courses are less common.
We have unusually small class sizes so you get plenty of opportunities to engage with professors personally and with other classmates. The administration makes a strong effort to help you secure internship opportunities and jobs after college.
We need more recruiters, and more companies to open up opportunities for students seeking employment, not just internships.
We never have a TA teach a class. Almost all of the professors have their PhD's. They also all have a great deal of real life experience working in various industries and on many different projects. This combination is exactly what a business program needs and I feel like it is lost in many other schools.
I think they should do more to help students get jobs after graduation. I believe they need more diversity when it comes to business recruiting on campus.
First, the teachers at this school are amazing. They have been involved in their respective industries and know how to prepare students for life after college. Many were highly respected and successful. They have connections as well which helps with the job search. Secondly, the facility is state of the art. The business school is by far the best school at Elon. They have really made an effort into developing the business school.
Some classes there is a lot of unnecessary busy work. I believe the school overdoes it with group projects and presentations, which take away from crucial time you could be using to learn more material. Sometimes I would just prefer to have a Midterm, Final, maybe a paper, and a couple HW's. I don't need all of that plus a couple more tests and a group project along with HW that you turn in. Sometimes it almost feels too much like a high school class structure than a college class structure which is frustrating but that could be all about which program you decide to choose before you attend. I also think the school would benefit from offering a introductory business course to find out which major you best fit in. For example, I didn't take a Finance class until my junior year that I really excelled in. In hindsight I probably would have majored in it if I knew I enjoyed it so much. Finally, I think they would benefit from capping the number of students in the school and having to apply to get in. I think there are too many students for the size of the school and some people that just aren't fit for the program. They need to be weeded out.
We have a unique team of teachers. They all work together to ensure we are learning relevant information to ensure we have the knowledge and experience to be successful in our future jobs.
I believe the business program should try to have more company recruiters come to Elon. I feel some companies that come to the triad area focus on recruiting from UNC Chapel Hill, Duke, and Wake Forest and somewhat look over Elon while in the area.
Professors and advisors genuinely care about the students here and it is important to them that we be successful. If you ever need help with schoolwork, home life, career problems, finding a job/internship, etc., there are always people willing to help you and lead you in the right direction. The networking opportunities here are also tremendous.
Our business program would be stronger with a larger alumni base and companies supporting Elon's business network. This would mean larger national recruiting events for our qualified students to participate with. Being in North Carolina, limits the employers students are exposed to.
Elon has one of the few sales programs in the country and those who participate in it have been very well prepared for the job market. In addition, classes are fairly small and students get the attention they need to learn well
I think that our business program needs a stronger emphasis on excel use. Excel is going to be critical for our futures, especially in our first jobs. That is one reason Dr. Gupta is my favorite professor thus far, he incorporates excel into all aspects of our class.
Elon is a small university that allows its students to know the professors better. We are able to talk about our academics, jobs, and applications in the job world. This makes us completely different from larger universities and the ability to grow as a community. Elon also has an exceptional program of fellows and builds throughout the college experience. Students in their first year can apply to join a fellow program and learn new business ideas, participate in specific classes and engage with the larger community.
Some faculty members are outstanding but some are very, very below par and addressing some of these professors would greatly improve the overall experience.
They work very hard to teach us how to work effectively in teams, which may have seemed irritating at first, but has taught me a lot. My professors have also generated engaging classroom atmospheres, which I appreciate. I also had a great opportunity to study abroad in London and have an internship while there.
