The College of Business & Public Administration strongly believes in providing experiential learning experiences for our students, faculty, and community.
Experiential education involves “learning by doing." At the College of Business & Public Administration we strive to meet these goals through the variety of business symposiums that are offered on campus throughout the year.
Experiential learning opportunities are an integral way for students to gain insight in to the business world. Experiential learning opportunities: Add more value to their academic studies by giving students a chance to apply theories learned in classes to “real life” situations and assist in identifying the interdisciplinary skills gained from the classroom that are utilized and applied in their field of interest.
Real World Educational Opportunities
Our students have a wealth of opportunities to apply classroom concepts to real world scenerios. For example, the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF) allows students to manage and administer a $1 million investment portfolio on the New York Stock Exchange.
The Dakota Venture Group gives students the opportunity to review and fund entrepreneurial business ventures. Students who participate in the American Marketing Association gain valuable insight through planning and promoting a special speaker series and visiting alumni at their career sites. Whichever extracurricular activities you choose, we are certain you will walk away with valuable hands-on experiences.
Students pursuing a degree program within the college also have access to a large pool of scholarships, which are awarded annually, as well as numerous internships that assist in building a student's resume.

- Executives in the classroom
