Dr. Emin Civi is using real-life opportunities in the workforce through a variety of experiential techniques to prepare his students for the future.

Dr. Civi’s retailing class is highly interactive and familiarizes students with the steps involved in running a real-life retail firm.

“One of the main components of the class is our retail clinic.
