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.
The ability to know your professors and for them to know you. It is impossible to do poorly if you take the effort to meet with your professors and get to know them and get them to help you. They are always willing to help you. If you are doing poorly it is because you either really don't understand and just never will or you are not willing to go and seek help and guidance.
The teaching quality and interaction with professors.
The diverse group of business teachers, who generally come from industry, helps prepare us for the real world.
The small class size makes getting to know your professors and classmates more intimate than at other schools. I feel I have a good understanding of this as I am a transfer student from the University of Delaware. Also, Elon offers many projects through its classes that allow students to contribute directly to companies, for instance I have crafted a marketing plan and performed a six sigma analysis on companies during my time here.
Classes are Elon are small, extremely engaging, and centered on teamwork, active participation, and presentations. While professors recognize theory is important, class time is usually spent on practical examples / applications. I have learned a lot over the past 4 years and feel I am well prepared to enter the job market.
The professional services staff is amazing; they go above and beyond to plan educational/developmental and networking events. They are also so helpful in guiding students through the internship and job search processes starting in students' first years. The class sizes are small and the school has a tight-knit community feel; my professors know me and hold me accountable to my standards.
Professional experience of teachers which translate into classroom skills, small classes allow for more one-on-one interaction.
We have our own career services department in the business school which helps students prepare for securing internships and post graduation jobs. In addition, we have had numerous speakers come to the school to speak in the business school for example: the CEO of Extended Stay America, head of supply chain for VF industries, and the general manager of communications for Volkswagen. These speakers giver students access to individuals with expertise in different fields so we can learn about their industries and how they got to where they are today. This information you gain from these speakers is so beneficial to students as we seek to begin our professional career.
The entrepreneurship professors teach students how to ask the correct questions, and how to analyze situations differently.
