Learn More About Our Faculty

Hear From Ryan Kauth:

"Entrepreneurial students who have great ideas need to share them. Keeping your idea to yourself benefits no one. Sharing your idea involves stepping forward as a leader and communicating your idea so many can understand it. Networking is very important in helping you do this. Your network develops in the classroom with your project team then grows with student organization participation, activities outside the classroom such as internships and volunteering, and with getting to know local community leaders in young professionals networks and industry associations."
