The College of Business offers students a myriad of experiential learning opportunities. These may include internships, externships, and professional networking opportunities.
Businesses often approach the CoB looking for practical help and advice with business challenges. Many of the classes, including computer information systems, marketing, management, and international business work with businesses in the local community, serving as consultants to help solve their particular challenges.
This experiential learning approach helps both the students and the businesses, giving students practical, hands-on experience, and providing businesses with new perspectives on issues.
CoB students also volunteer countless hours in the community, supporting a number of philanthropic organizations.
