The Smith School of Business faculty has been recruited from the graduate programs of leading universities nationwide. They are world-renowned scholars whose teaching and research equips students with the wisdom of business scholarship rooted in the experiential lessons of the marketplace. In addition to mastering core functional business knowledge, Smith students develop sophisticated analytical skills and an “integrative” systems understanding of the way the functional aspects of organizations interact. Students learn how to leverage big data for better decision-making, and explore their career options in a tight-knit community that encourages intelligent risk-taking, not cutthroat competition.
