“Caldwell University provides an amazing opportunity for students to learn real world business practices. The Professors were professional and world-class. I have had an amazing time here at Caldwell, mainly because of my advisors, professors and supportive classmates. The small class sizes really allowed for me to succeed and get that 1-on-1 attention, which was a critical part of my learning and professional development overall.“
