"We in the School of Business believe in and live by the quote from Malaguzzi, 'Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the water. Through an active, reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen learning how to learn.' Students and teachers work together in the School of Business to improve the learning process. We as teachers strive to provide our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to compete in today's global market place."
