MGMT Faculty
When I was a UG student, a professor invited me to lunch after a seminar. I later became his research assistant and pursued a Ph.D. in the program he recommended. The "Take Faculty to Lunch" program is a fantastic experience, and I would encourage all students (and faculty) to take advantage of enjoying an informal conversation. Talk about anything other than the class; you never know where the conversation will lead!

We not only enjoyed a delightful lunch, but also engaged in many meaningful discussions! This activity gave me the opportunity to learn a lot of content that I wouldn't have learned in class, and I greatly benefited from it.

This is a wonderful opportunity for faculty and students to engage with one another in a more casual setting outside the classroom. I’ve had a lovely time at each of these lunches and look forward to meeting more students. Would encourage all students to take different faculty out to lunch!

It is great to speak more outside the classroom with excellent professors like Professor Martha. "Take Faculty to Lunch" provides both staff and students the awesome opportunity to converse more closely on various topics of interest and connect. Thank you!
