Mind your Business

The Mind Your Business Program is a one-week pre-fall program, open to incoming freshmen interested in a major within the Jack Welch College of Business. You might know exactly what you want to do for a career, or you might be completely undecided. Either way, you’ll find keys to the next step within this program. You’ll meet other students, faculty, employers and other community partners who will help you establish your network from day one. You’ll begin to explore the Welch College of Business and learn skills necessary to get you on the right track, both professionally and personally.

Below are just a few of the skills/highlights the Mind Your Business program offers:

  • We set expectations and goals for your first year as a student in the Jack Welch College of Business
