Business Week Transition Seminars

transition seminars

The transition from college to corporate life can be daunting, but with well-directed guidance from experienced professionals, students can achieve success. The topics covered in each seminar were chosen to better prepare students as they enter their prospective 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 discussions.

Following the last Transition Seminar, there will be a networking reception in the COUNTRY Financial Atrium. The reception will provide students with a great opportunity to individually connect with seminar speakers. Refreshments will also be provided.

Business Casual or Casual Attire is recommended.
