Experiential Learning

The Key to Practical Wisdom

No matter which degree you pursue, you'll have opportunities to learn from firsthand experience.

Whether it's running the #1 student-managed investment fund in the country using the University's endowment, launching your own business, or providing free consulting services to nonprofits, you'll be encouraged to engage the world — and change it for the better.

When graduation arrives, you'll find you're not entering the real world for the first time. You're already a part of it, fully prepared for your career and future life.
