Engage with career-planning specialists to take the Strong Interest Inventory, which will help you discover your business passion by highlighting your strengths and areas of interest. Along with staying in a college dorm, you’ll visit places like the Federal Reserve and an off-campus business. As you meet with professionals in various careers, you’ll engage with your peers to experience business thinking through engaging activities.
