“The Stuart School of Business curriculum puts a hands-on approach to the courses that will be most relevant to your future career. Most professors are actively working in their field, so they focus the material on what they use professionally.”
“With the smaller class sizes at Stuart we really get to know our professors, and they get to know us. I've been able to have one to one conversations after class, join a professor for coffee, and get advice and networking opportunities. It makes the learning environment that much better.”
