MAKING THEIR MARK

The School of Business and Economics takes pride in the success of our alumni. Preparing and placing career-ready graduates are the end goals of our events, career-readiness and internship programs. Our career-exploration events help students find the right path for their academic studies, while our professional-development activities , such as LinkedIn seminars and etiquette dinners, build students’ confidence. Employer events , including networking receptions and industry panels, connect our students with organizations and help them land internships and full-time positions. By participating in our numerous events and programs, many of our students get hired before graduation and leave the university to start their professional careers immediately upon completing their degrees!
