Business Student Opportunities
Because of today's highly competitive business environment, international business experience and internships are priceless.
Every few years, business students travel to China to learn about Chinese culture, government and international business. On a recent trip, students visited Beijing and Shanghai and included visits to large businesses (Cargill, GE, Pentair, Chamber of Commerce), ministries, and popular sites such as Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall, Temple of Heaven, and the Forbidden City.
Africa missions trips
Professor James Smith leads an annual missions trip to Africa. On the most recent trip, students built a computer lab with 15 workstations, constructed three playgrounds for orphans, and led a daily Bible school that culminated in eight people being saved. Students earn 4 credits by enrolling in the Cross Cultural Ministry Experience course.
Every Northwestern business student completes at least one semester-long internship. An internship provides realistic, hands-on experience and valuable networking. Many students find it opens the doors to a full-time position after graduation. It is a great opportunity to apply what you learn in the classroom and experience the business world in a more realistic environment.
One of the primary benefits of an internship is that it allows you to "test the waters" to determine whether or not a particular area or company is a good fit with your interests and skills. For more information on internships, visit Career Development.
