“Professor Hannah made learning about innovation fun and exciting. I was always looking forward to class. This was one of the first classes I took at Questrom Business School and it left me excited for my future classes. I ended up switching my major into Business with a minor in innovation largely due to the passion his class sparked.” – Christa Campbell
