faculty and students

We research and apply modern education techniques to maximize transfer between the academic learning environment and the student’s professional practice. From the working professionals’ point of view, the most valuable graduate education aligns with and anticipates their evolving professional work. Toward that end, we employ a learning approach that functions as an enhanced, guided and practical version of the life-long practices that graduates will employ on the job. We have adopted a pedagogy that is based heavily on team-oriented projects, simulations, just-in-time coaching and tutorials, and industrial practicums, delivering our courses as Story-Centered Curricula.
