Applied Learning in the Classroom
Saunders professors place a premium on teaching. Many have industry experience prior to becoming professors, and often they maintain engaged with industry through capstone projects and research studies. Our high teacher to student ratios give students the personal attention they deserve. Moreover, as teaching assistants are never used in the classroom, Saunders professors get to know their students and take an engaged interest in their career success.
Saunders business courses and programs are built with an emphasis on real-world experiences over theory. Hands on assignments often serve as resume-building experiences, while entrepreneurial help build skills and knowledge across business disciplines. Many times real projects submitted by corporate partners will serve as classroom subject matter, helping to ensure the relevance to issues and opportunities faced by employers.
