The Welch Experience

Welch Experience

The Welch Experience is designed to provide our undergraduate business students with an integrated professional and academic development program to prepare today’s student for tomorrow’s global economy. This concept in undergraduate education will enhance the learning environment with a comprehensive approach to critical thinking, career knowledge and professional development.

The business world constantly evolves with structural changes in the global economy, technological innovations, and adoption of best practices. Only those professionals who can keep pace with or stay ahead of the rapidly changing business environment and can recognize developing business trends are likely to emerge as influential and successful business leaders. The Welch Experience is a comprehensive approach to business education that builds on an already existing curriculum of excellence. Starting in the students’ first year, Sacred Heart faculty, administration, and alumni will seek to educate the students inside and outside of the classroom, and inside and outside of the country. The Welch Experience is committed to combining education for life with preparation for professional excellence or graduate excellence.

Speakers and Corporate Visits

One of the most important things our students can do to open pathways to the future is meet people. Our corporate visits and guest speakers allow our students to do just that. It also allows them to see what life can be like in different industries and environments, and meet the people who can grant them access.
