Not only has undergraduate enrollment in business programs grown by 21% over the last five years, but the profile of each entering class has become more competitive as well.
During the same period of time, graduate student enrollment increased by 67%, driven in large part by new master’s degrees in financial risk management, business analytics & project management, and human resource management.
The School’s faculty offer a wealth of academic and business experience to students and the business community.
Over 96% of them have earned a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field, and all are actively involved in scholarly activities including authoring books, college textbooks, articles, conference papers, and original research projects; business, government and industrial consulting; and sponsored research for academic programs.
Such scholarly activities enable faculty to stay current in and contribute to their fields of knowledge, as well as to bring a balanced perspective between theory and practice into the classroom.
To help meet the teaching needs of unprecedented enrollment growth in recent years, the business school faculty grew by 13% between 2013 and 2017.
Over the last five years, both undergraduate and full-time MBA students saw overall increases in average compensation.
