What to Expect
Through most of your freshman and sophomore years as a business Management major you’ll take courses drawn primarily from the university core curriculum. These courses promote the development of key skills and prepare you for the major course work.
Even as a freshman or sophomore, it’s never too early to visit the Career Resource Center in the Office of Professional and Career Development or to schedule a one-on-one appointment with a career coach. You should also review the schedule of professional development programs and seminars for topics of interest.
During the first semester of your junior year, you will satisfy the majority of your business core requirements. It is at the start of your second semester that you will gain greater control of your academic future. This is when you begin your elective coursework. In addition to discipline- specific electives, you will have the opportunity to explore new areas of interest through a number of free elective options.
In your senior year you’ll complete your course work, begin the job interview process, and possibly consider graduate school. If you haven’t maintained relationships with past employers, professors and mentors over the past few years, be sure to reconnect and network. Consider a wide variety of opportunities, stay committed to your goals and above all, remain patient. Everything tends to fall into place as it should.
