During courses such as sophomore-level Principles of Management, junior-level Principles of Marketing, and senior-level Business Policy, you will compete against classmates to run your own simulated companies. These simulations actively involve decision-making processes that managers go through daily, as well as those that require the formulation, implementation, and evaluation of long-term strategies.
Case Studies and Experiential Exercises
Case studies and experiential exercises are used in many classes to engage you in active problem-solving situations in business environments across industries, firms and, individuals.
You will have a number of internship opportunities, including an internship abroad, toapply knowledge and learn from the experience itself. Your internship requirements remain flexible and depend upon your education and career goals.
Accounting values the ability to present your work in a professional setting. Most courses require written, oral, and visual presentations to master these skills. Recognizing that organizational decisions are not always based on individual analyses, many of these activities will have you work collaboratively on group projects.
The School of Global Business encourages you to spend a semester or even a year studying abroad. In most cases, it is even possible to do the internship abroad. Find the abroad experience that works best for you, from semesters, as well as one-week, two-week, short-term, and summer study abroad opportunities.
