Corporate Visit Day

Over 125 Barney School Students Participated in Fall 2016 Corporate Visit Day.

Every semester the Barney School of Business holds a corporate visit day for their students. This year on April 7, 2017 University of Hartford students will attend their corporate visits at partner companies Aetna, Cantor Fitzgerald, Edible Arrangements, Grant Thornton LLP, Stanley Black & Decker, and The Hartford.

These corporate visits enable students to spend a day in a company aligned with their majors and industries of interest. Students meet alumni and their colleagues, see where they work, learn what they do, and become informed of internship and full time job opportunities. Corporate visit day provides students the opportunity to network and connect with professionals. A further benefits is the potential to be recognized for their outstanding accomplishments through their engagement during the visit and via their resumes that are submitted to the employers prior to the visit. Many of these corporate visits leads to Barney School students landing internships and full time positions. 

Providing this opportunity to students is only one way in which the Barney schoolof business is ensuring that its students become Career Ready. Students also participate in a mock Interview week, weekly professional development workshops, company spotlight sessions, and career fairs.
