Create your experiential advantage

Your degree is designed to launch your career quickly by offering four types of in and out-of-class experiences. These experiences connect you with outstanding classmates, faculty, staff, employers, alumni and others so that you can grow personally and professionally.

These experiences develop your knowledge, skills and professional qualities by strengthening your understanding of concepts and allowing you to apply and integrate what you know in the real world. And in the real world, your experience matters!
