Career Coaches

Students are assigned a career coach based upon their declared major. While each of our career coaches are fully qualified to provide guidance to all of the different business majors, students are assigned to a specific career coach so that a relationship between the student and career coach may be formed. Students will then work with their career coach as they progress through their academic career help prepare students to action their individual career plans.
