What Current Students Say See All 5 Comments >

Our College of Business offers programs such as the Bulls Business Community (which I described above and has thoroughly prepared me for interviews, critical thinking, dressing professionally, and many other things). We also have the Corporate Mentor Program where students receive mentors from the business world, has several business organizations, two business professional fraternities, a business communications center for help on papers, cover letters, and resumes, and much much more. The faculty, staff, and Dean are very engaged.
