Explore Your Future

The College of Business Job Shadow Program is a one-day commitment during winter break. During the one-day experience, you will be able to explore a career in business that interests you. The goal is to provide you with a clearer understanding of your major, help you begin building a business network, and an opportunity to visit with alums to see what opportunities are available to you in business.
