Alumni Profiles

“I am so thankful to the professors in the business major. Each professor had a very distinct teaching style, all of which I now realize was so beneficial in making me a well-rounded student, person, and job applicant. Some classes used primarily coursework to give me the knowledge necessary to be competitive and successful in finding a job in the finance industry. Other classes used real projects to give us experience with local businesses and professionals.”
