First-year courses meet once a week Monday through Friday. Activities outside the classroom include team meetings, attending executive guest lectures, skill-building workshops, fieldwork and other company visits, career development workshops and conducting the summer job or internship search.
Students acquire a valuable understanding of working in an international economy through the Global Business Experience. This required course, between the fall and spring semesters of the first year, comprises a ten day trip to an international country where students visit with a series of companies and meet with business and government officials to further their global mindset and cultural awareness
Four required courses provide a firm grounding in business, ethics and leadership. Three courses (Accountable Leadership, Global Strategy and Law, Ethics and Social Responsibility) prepare students for the Corporate Immersion Project course. In this course, faculty-supervised teams build upon what they have learned and apply consulting skills to define, analyze and recommend solutions for a clients’ strategic management problem.
