Our faculty apply innovative teaching approaches and experiential learning techniques that make our classes both challenging and relevant. As the landscape of business changes, so does our curriculum. We understand that as a leading business school we arenít expected to react to business environments, but rather proactively shape the landscape of business education and research. In addition, our commitment to ethical leadership, with the understanding that responsible management begins in our curriculum, produces many of the most respected thought leaders in the world of business today. Thatís why many Fortune 500 companies hire our graduates: So many are led by our graduates.

The Farmer School is renowned for its commitment to globalization. Our faculty are internationally recognized in their fields and travel the globe to teach, research and consult. Our students travel extensively, studying around the world, experiencing new cultures and harnessing new energies, bringing back to campus an enlightened spirit for learning. More than 60% of our students study abroad, which is nearly triple the national average. Study and internships in places like Argentina, Australia, Korea, China, the Middle East and Europe are life-changing, and these endeavors prepare our students to be more sophisticated and effective leaders in the complex world of global management.

Being a Farmer School student means working collaboratively, with the best and brightest. Being a Farmer School graduate means being part of a world-wide network of almost 50,000 alumni, crossing multiple generations of business leaders.
