L&S Business & Entrepreneurship

L&S students and alumni have the knowledge and skills to be successful in business careers. In fact, many employers seek out liberal arts students to meet the unique needs of their organization. Meet with an advisor to discuss how your L&S degree could translate into a career in management, sales, insurance, operations, logistics, finance, banking, real estate, or entrepreneurship.

The freedom to learn provided by American Family, was the best thing about my internships. I was given room to breathe and do my work. Nobody is micro-managing you, but the support is there if you need it. The company is really focused on you developing as a professional, while completing work for them. As a programmer, it is essential to spend time keeping up with changes in technology, so the freedom really allowed for me to grow in areas that interested me.
