Engaged Teachers and Researchers
The faculty members at St. Thomas are dedicated practitioner-scholars. They strike a balance between theory and practice through teaching, research and consulting work. With their active research and frequent publications, St. Thomas business faculty are advancing our understanding of management, business ethics, finance, marketing and more. As a student here, you’ll learn from experts who are at the top of their game, both as teachers and scholars.
In our high-touch, personalized learning environment, the entire St. Thomas community is invested in the success of every student. We use an applied learning model, which means faculty gives students hands-on experience and real-world examples of classroom concepts. We use simulations, case studies, service learning projects and other experiential learning tools. When you learn by doing, you’re better prepared to hit the ground running at work.
