Wake Forest Faculty Facts

Our business students are taught by some of academia’s brightest minds. The faculty posseses an understanding of what makes the business world work and what makes it fail. They know because they’ve been there. They’ve worked for leading companies, followed their own entrepreneurial spirit to start successful businesses, consult regularly and have seen business in many forms, in many nations. 

Their ability to share that knowledge to help students reach their full potential is unmatched, and their commitment to providing practical experience puts a real-world face on the theories they teach.   With a student-faculty ratio of 10:1, the interaction between and among exceptional professors and bright, enthusiastic students is so much a part of the culture at Wake Forest that it can be easy to forget that such engagement is no longer the norm across higher education. The concept of balancing teaching and research demands is embraced here and acknowledged as an essential dynamic of an intellectually rigorous community.
