About 90 percent of the faculty members who teach in the MBA program are full-time faculty from the School of Business. They are drawn from the disciplines of accounting, finance, economics, management, market¬°ing, and information systems, and they are engaged in the local business community or in cutting-edge research in their fields. The remaining 10 percent are senior-level executives from the region who bring the added dimension of their real-world experiences to the classroom. All members of the faculty, including adjuncts, hold doctoral degrees.
