Student Opportunities

AACSB logoBeyond the classroom

The ins and outs of business can’t be explained or experienced solely within the walls of a classroom, so our business students are given many opportunities to put their knowledge to the test out in the real world.

Our majors can:

  • Gain first-hand experience in large and small businesses and industries through project-based internships approved by the department and Lander’s campus-wide Experience Your Education (EYE) program.
  • Polish their leadership skills in the Lander Professional Business Society, organized to simulate an actual business.
  • Be invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma, the business honor society.
  • Engage in global learning.
