Your advisor and a faculty mentor will help you have a beneficial experience where you can earn academic credits and gain real-world business experience.
In your junior and senior year you may be offered the opportunity to work on research topics with professors. This would allow you to actively participate in ongoing research projects or to develop a unique path, guided by an expert in the field.
