Class Projects

Students have the opportunity to work on projects outside of the classroom environment. Under the supervision of faculty members, students have completed market research projects, written business plans, and designed websites for local businesses and not-for-profit organizations.

The business department faculty bring real-world business experience to the classroom. In addition to academic backgrounds in business, the faculty have significant experience working in the business world. Some faculty members have started their own businesses, others have worked internationally,and all bring the business world into the classroom. Having opportunities to integrate classroom learning with real business experiences is a critical part of business education.
