Students and alumni praised TCU Neeley’s quality environment: 

“Small program allowed for quality interactions with faculty, alumni and visiting business professionals.”

“Small class sizes give you great access to the professors (who really care about your success on a personal level), extracurricular activities like case competitions, and the ability to build a smaller but closer network.”

“It allowed more 1-on-1 time with faculty and staff, and the relationships which were built with fellow classmates I felt were deeper and richer.”
