As a Business professor and practitioner of management, I believe it is important that every student has the opportunity to become an active and engaged learner. This type of learning involves the use of as many hands-on activities as possible in order to model the types of tasks and activities that can be expected during a career in Business. Through this active involvement, students gain essential skills that will enable them to achieve success.
