  • Faculty

    At Syms School of Business, we boast a faculty of committed and accomplished professionals. Our faculty for the EMBA include experienced entrepreneurs, executives, scholars, authors and researchers. They are leading practitioners in the business world and also active researchers, adding to the world’s knowledge of business and entrepreneurship. It is the best of both worlds—students gain tremendous benefits by interacting with these innovators while they also learn from the faculty’s firsthand experience and practical insights. The Syms approach ensures our students get the most out of our people and programs.

    Just as important as our faculty’s academic and professional qualifications is their approachability and dedication to our students’ success. Syms students are able to form close relationships with the faculty, and faculty often collaborate on our students’ business plans and ventures. In addition to the faculty listed below, we host distinguished visiting professors for select courses, representing some of the leading thinkers, practitioners and researchers in the world of business.
