Davis College of Business: Business your Way
I decided to come to JU because when I was taking my campus tour and walking around afterwards, I just encountered a lot of faculty and they were more than willing to have conversations with me, and answer any questions that I had and I really thought that, that connection with the faculty, being able to have the faculty readily available just to have conversations on the sidewalk is a really great thing about JU.
How the professors treat you, how they talk to you, the experience they have, they need to have 15 to 20 years of experience just to teach. You're not going to learn from a book, like this big, you are going to learn from their experience, and I think that's the coolest thing you can do.
Back in high school, I was looking at all possibilities. Every industry has business and so when I finish the program with my MBA in finance, I plan to go in the air force. There's many different avenues you can take it. You can do business your way.
