Professional Experience Requirement Leads to Future Success

When you enter the business world after college, would you like to have an advantage over other job candidates?  You will, because all students at the Monfort College of Business are required to complete at least 50 hours of professional experience before graduation.  This provides you with the "real world" experience that is integral to success in the business world.   You’ll learn the basic skills and principles expected of you in an entry-level position.  Plus, you’ll graduate with confidence, knowing you are prepared to enter your professional career.

Who is required to complete a Professional Experience?
All Business Administration students are required to complete a Professional Experience prior to graduation. Software Engineering & International Students are exempt from the Professional Experience requirement. International students need to meet with Cassandra Shearholdt to complete a waiver.

The Professional Experience Requirement is broken down into various phases that should be completed at certain points in your college career.  To get started, review the requirement details and checklist.  Then, contact the MCB Professional experience office
