Preparing Tomorrow’s Workforce By Partnering with Industry
Students win when we forge alliances with corporate partners to bring internships and mentors into their lives. They win as faculty use real-world corporate projects in the classroom. They win when they see how their USF business education can help them get a job – and contribute to a business.
The college, employers, and students all win when companies play a role in shaping our academic programs. Such engagement attracts top employers like Google, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Walt Disney, Nielsen, Amazon, and FedEx to the college.
Emphasizing Global Literacy
Smart business leaders are global citizens, so we give our students and faculty many opportunities to study and teach abroad. We also partner with respected international institutions to provide a USF business degree overseas.
These experiences give our students rich learning opportunities, broaden our faculty’s network, and bring new employers to the college.
Infusing Analytics and Creativity
Today, businesses collect mountains of data. Companies must understand the data, know how to analyze it, and determine its impact on their bottom line. Excellence in creativity and business analytics is the distinctive identity the College of Business seeks to form over the next five years. We train students across all disciplines to analyze and interpret data to make sound – and creative – business decisions. Our faculty examines how data is and can be applied to business and discover innovative ways to employ business analytics.
Building World-Class Faculty
Our faculty includes experts in every business discipline, excellent teachers who are also engaged in cutting-edge research and activities that enable them to bring unique experiences to the classroom. They are knowledge producers who examine contemporary business issues and share that knowledge in the classroom. Our faculty do so much more than teach business; they promote an entrepreneurial spirit, transforming students into business thinkers, ready to lead in business and society.
