What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

Everyone running it actually cares about the students. They want us to succeed and do everything possible to make sure we are capable of landing a job out of school and provide numerous opportunities for networking. They are actually in the process of constructing a new building for undergraduate business students, which is pretty cool because now we will have a place specifically for us, rather than one building for graduate and undergraduate students to "call home."
