In the cluster, you learn how to balance your time and be productive. You learn how to present effectively, and to write precise, appropriate documents for real clients. It's all real-world applicable. It just really polishes you as a person.

Doing business in another culture is something unique that we offer. Students struggle with some of the challenges of cross-cultural working, but watching them work through it while also delivering value for another client is pretty remarkable.

The College of Business offers students opportunities to get involved outside the classroom. In our extracurricular activities, we have the opportunity to discover our leadership qualities.
