Professional Experience

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?
Within the next year, all MCB students will be required to complete a Professional Experience prior to graduation.  However, as the program is new and being implemented, any student with 60 or more credits at the beginning of Fall Semester 2012 is not required to complete a Professional Experience.  Any student with 59 and fewer credits at that time is required to complete a Professional Experience.

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 general procedure.  Then, contact:
