Beyond the Classroom


Internships are a requirement for graduating with a degree in business. They provide students the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in real business environment. Business faculty advisors and the Department of Business Internship Coordinator, Georgette Lopes, will assist business majors to find, attain, and complete a meaningful work assignment in the outside business world. Depending upon the rigor and focus of the internship, students can even earn up to 12 credit hours from their work experience.

Business Student Council (BSC)

The Business Student Council (BSC) is committed to supporting the mission of the Department of Business by serving as a liaison between the students and faculty/staff.  Our primary focus is to foster a community by gathering students' feedback and concerns to give them a voice, planning extracurricular activities to promote unity, and recommending courses of action to improve the Department of Business. 

Guest Lectures/Presentations

 The department is also taking a leadership role in providing professional development opportunities to deaf and hard of hearing executives and professionals in business and government. We keep in touch with our alumni to help them upgrade their professional skills.
