The goal of the career option is to help companies identify qualified candidates to fill open positions including internships and full-time positions. From our conversations with companies, we understand that companies have a need to fill open positions throughout the year. We have partnered with companies to get in front of students with relevant work experience to share detailed information about marketing, finance, accounting, sales and additional open positions. This provides companies with the chance to cultivate relationships with potential candidates to interview. Through this interaction, our students have been placed in promising roles with companies of all sizes including start-ups and global corporations. From a practical perspective, we found that this approach resonates well with our students and business partners.
The Business Partnership Program is the intersection between theory and practice. College of Business students spend countless hours learning about the business world from some of the brightest faculty in the nation. In the Business Partnership Program, the students will get an opportunity to meet professionals in the business world, visit companies to learn about their products and services, and gain practical work experience while pursuing their college degree. Business professionals will have a chance to share information about their companies through speaker events, mentor students during externships, and connect with potential future candidates for career opportunities at their companies. The Business Partnership Program is an expansive community between those studying business theories with those applying business practices every day.
We are committed to the successful placement of our diverse and talented students of undergraduate and graduate business students for internships and career opportunities in your company.
