  • The opportunity to obtain a comprehensive understanding of business and sustainable business practices;
  • The leadership skills needed to manage organizations — communication, problem-solving, teamwork, and utilization of technology;
  • A series of professional development activities to provide self-insight and assessment of career expectations and opportunities; and
  • State-of-the-art curricula taught by highly motivated and concerned faculty on the leading edge of their disciplines.
