Practical Preparation and Job Placement

To be a force for good in the business world, you need three things: the knowledge and skills to be a force, the moral formation to discern what is good... and a job.

In the School of Business and Economics, we do everything we can to make sure our students have all three by the time they graduate. We place a strong emphasis on the integration of the liberal arts in our business education (because executives look for a broad liberal arts background in employees), but we want to provide students with the opportunity to gain practical experience as well.


That's why participation in our Career Development program is required for undergraduate students. We want students to fully experience meaningful internships, personalized career coaching, and networking. Our Career Development program not only builds job-search skills, but also connects students with a large and active network of CUA alumni and friends of our program who can help launch their careers.

The process of professional development begins on day one of the Business and Economics' Career Development program.
