Experiential Opportunities

Experiential opportunities are project specific partnerships with local and international organizations. Think of this as a mini-internship opportunity where you put into practice what you are learning in the classroom in a meaningful way. And it will look outstanding on your resume.

Current Projects

We will be launching experiential opportunities for all six majors within the Broad College of Business in late August or early September of the Fall 2023 semester. Keep an eye on this space for position details and how to apply!

Case Competitions

Case competitions are an opportunity for students to work in teams to analyze a problem specific to a case study, and strategically develop the best solution(s) within the case study guidelines by a certain date. Teams deliver presentations for judges and, these are great opportunities to hone your critical thinking skills, your presentation abilities, and looks great on your resume. And there is typically prize money at stake as well!

Codes of Ethics from Professional Associations and Societies

As business professionals, you will be held to certain expectations around ethical and appropriate conduct. There are some universal principles, such as integrity and respect, but each discipline emphasizes different areas of conduct based on the ethical needs of that profession. Review the Codes of Ethics for your major’s professional associations to ensure you act in line with those expectations.
