Students sample the functional operations of any business, such as accounting, organization, personnel management, marketing, and social responsibility. Students also play the role of investor to experience the market process as it operates through contemporary financial institutions. A survey of the evolution of free market and command economies leads to understanding relationships of business with labor and government in today’s mixed economy.
Students examine their personal and professional goals; learn about their strengths and weaknesses; and assemble a job portfolio consisting of cover letter, resume, and professional recommendations. Students build their professional network through informational interviews.
