The faculty in the college of business are first rate. They have produced an extreme level of expertise in the field and this translated to the classroom as a student of their PhD classes. As a PhD student, I was able to interact with my professors continuously, especially with my advisor, Christopher Laincz, and the rest of my dissertation committee. This was both rewarding and fruitful especially as I neared graduation.
