Business Week Transition Seminars
The transition from college to corporate life can be daunting, but with well-directed guidance from experienced professionals, students can achieve it. The topics covered in each seminar were chosen to better prepare students as they enter their perspective industries. Each seminar is constructed to provide unique insights that students would not otherwise gain. To help ease the transition, distinguished College of Business alumni will be returning to campus to share their experiences. The alumni chosen are masters in their specific fields of expertise and will be providing valuable perspectives.
The Transition Seminars are free, however, registration is required. Students needing proof of attendance slips will be required to attend two seminars. All seminar options will be repeated during the second session, allowing students to participate in several discussions.
Following both Transition Seminars sessions, there will be a networking reception in the State Farm Hall of Business Atrium. The reception will provide students the opportunity to speak individually with seminar speakers. Refreshments will also be provided.
