“A great sense of community...”

“I love that the School of Management and Labor Relations is so diverse and ever-changing. The class sizes are small and intimate, and professors actually get to know the students on a personal basis. Classes are much more than just a lecture, and professors go beyond the classroom to help you succeed and pursue your career goals. Many of the professors were either in the field for a very long time, or are still currently in the field. It allows students to not only learn about the material in class, but also outside experiences that each unique professor brings. On top of our professors, the school builds a great sense of community with the students.”
