Tight-Knit Culture

We’re a small and selective business school with a unique learning culture. Because we’re small, you’ll be on a first-name basis with your classmates as well as your professors. And — bonus — you’re all on the same campus in the same building. Classes have a vitality that’s fueled by a diversity of views and backgrounds. In fact, Princeton Review ranks our classroom and campus experience No. 10 in the U.S.


Learn and Lead

Our intimate campus and small student body lend themselves to close connections and strong collaboration with classmates. The learning is team-based; you’ll work together and challenge each other. The very nature of our size encourages you to step up and take a leadership role. It's all hands on deck. Your voice is heard. You matter.
