Career Compass

Whether you're not sure what area of business is right for you or you've known what your major would be since you were five, our Career Compass Program is designed to help you become familiar with the College of Business. The program will help you discover more about yourself, and to reach your career destination.


The Career Compass Program is required for all new College of Business freshmen and can be taken as an elective by any College of Business major. Freshman must complete the course and receive a grade of "S".
