“These are the type of opportunities that complement the learning experience and make a Cumberland education distinctive,” said Dr. Paul Stumb, Dean of the Labry School of Science, Technology and Business at Cumberland University.  “The series will provide students with unique insights, experiences, and the opportunity to learn about many unique fields such as entrepreneurship, energy, education and international business.

Cumberland has never been conservative in providing its students the best and most unique learning opportunities available. We are very much looking forward to working with these Tuck alumni, expanding our resources, and positioning our graduates to be more competitive in the marketplace.
