Career Ready

At the Barney School of Business, career preparation is at the heart of everything we do.

We designed all of our classes, internships, and professional development experiences to help you land your dream job.

Classes

Student speaking in class

Our faculty are experts in their fields and have the professional contacts that will open doors for you.

Our classes all have a Career Ready component, with lessons reflecting the real world. Exploring and Planning Career Options is our signature Career Ready course. You'll explore Iimportant topics like résumé preparation, interview techniques, job-search techniques, business etiquette, and professionalism.

Internships

Student getting help with a resume

To start your career, you need hands-on experience in addition to classroom knowledge. That’s where an internship comes in. Work with one of our local corporate partners or a non-profit. Many students secure permanent positions after their internships are over.
