Students must be equipped with leadership, technological and analytical skills to succeed. Towards that end, the Hampton University School of Business is continuously exploring new ways to combine traditional, case-based and experimental teaching methods in a way that reflects the realities of contemporary business. The overall goal is to prepare leaders and scholars who will assume pivotal roles in academic and business organizations.
