September has come and gone, and the new school year is well underway at The Business School. As we progress through this new year, a common trait keeps recurring in our students and our faculty - leadership. Whether it is abroad or at home, our faculty and students are using their knowledge and skills to help others succeed in their ambitions and goals.
