“The professors at UT really set themselves apart. Not only are they constantly in contact with industry professionals in supply chain and throughout the C-suite, which allows them to stay relevant, but they also take the time to care and develop relationships with them so you can continue talking with them (which I do, by the way) even long after graduation.”
