What our students say
"Music business professor, Jim Foglesong, taught me much - mostly from his actions. In spite of his enormous success in the music business, he was so kind to everyone, took time to get to know me and others, and even attended my softball games. Today I follow some of his basic lessons: be on time, be dependable, work hard. They haven't failed me thus far."
"I work on a small team that serves as these departments - marketing, brand management, accounting, sales, and customer relations. Having a multi-faceted business background from Trevecca gave me the ability to wear multiple hats and, therefore, further the reach of my company and career."
