The professors behind our Purdue Master’s programs are more than educators – they are recognized leaders in their fields of study. They serve as editors or on the editorial boards of more than 50 professional journals, and the research productivity of the school’s management program is ranked among the world’s best.

Many of our faculty members provide consulting services to Fortune 500 companies, while others work on projects funded by government agencies, private foundations, and corporate sponsors.
Purdue promotes an active dialogue between professors and students, wherein students establish rapport with the faculty and find boundless opportunities for collaboration and learning. This occurs both in the classroom and in more casual settings, such as our weekly master’s social hour.
At Purdue, quality teaching moves beyond typical lectures and exams to experiential learning exercises, computer simulations, field trips, and off-site projects with corporate partners. Our faculty will ultimately serve as more than your teachers – they’ll become your mentors, associates, and advisors.
