Providing entrepreneurial students the resources to achieve success
Fourth-year Management Information Systems student Zachary White recognized that his first year business courses gain him the courage to take on fulltime employment the following summer. Thanks to The Freshman Experience: Biz 1+2 program's hands-on business experience, Zachary found the confidence to apply for and receive a competitive internship at Intuit.
Zachary's story is not uncommon at
