Business In Practice

We recently updated our curriculum to expand opportunities for our students to work with major companies to solve real business problems as a part of their education. This experience gives them dynamic, individual and team-based experiences before they enter the workforce, and helps them to build skills in social, analytical, competitive, and professional intelligence.
