Current Hot Topics
Two things you need to know about working effectively with business majors:
  • Admission processes for business programs vary across institutions. For programs with a secondary admission process, it is critical that advisors work with students early in their collegiate careers to create a parallel plan for situations where admission is not granted.
  • Internships and cooperative programs are instrumental in preparing business students for employment.  It is important that business advisors encourage students to develop relationships with the Career Services office on their campus as the field of business is competitive and ever-changing.
