Step 3: Make a plan

As you advance through your business major, make a plan to develop your leadership and professional skills while you complete your academic training. Our four-year plan is helpful in guiding what you should do at what time.


Freshman = Engage

Find ways to get relevant and related experience as soon as possible and begin building your resume.

  • Explore as many possibilities as you can for potential internships with your academic advisor.
  • Build a first draft of your resume and keep coming back to add the experience you gain.
