When I first came to visit the school, I did not have a good feeling or vibe. The teachers were monotone and when I asked about scholarships, they didn't give me any answers to help me out. I did not feel very welcomed, but this institution is a great business school in Missouri.

It is a good school with some great teachers. Not every teacher is gold, but they still know their material well. To say one thing wrong or right about the teachers would a misrepresentation. They have a diverse staff of various teaching styles that complement each other well when taking multiple classes.

I have not had a chance to visit the actual campus in MO but I've attended classes on base, the instructors have been very kind and understanding. They are all very smart too.
