Career Management Program
This program is a comprehensive career preparation initiative that develops students into industry professionals who will make valuable contributions and succeed in the global marketplace. The program focuses on key areas of student professional development (SPD):
The program strengthens individual communication and interpersonal skills. Student engagement in the program begins during freshman year and extends to graduation and beyond.
The School of Business internship course is a complementary source of learning and enhancement to the student's academic program and career objectives. This is achieved through experiential education engaging the students in a unique three-way partnership between an approved business or organization, the university, and the student.
The overall unique learning experience will be guided by a learning agreement outlining specific work-related experiences and academic components designed to enhance the student's knowledge. Finally, a series of regularly scheduled reflections and learning sessions conducted by the course instructor is required. The internship course is designed to help students work both individually and collaboratively in a real workplace environment that is characterized by diversity, uncertainty, and rapid change. The work environment will require that students utilize and improve their communication skills while working with clients, supervisors, and co-workers.
