What opportunities are there to bolster my resume while I'm in the program?
Internships. Because UST is located in the heart of a thriving business community, there are many opportunities for internships. Companies such as Target, Best Buy and 3M regularly employ our business students in a variety of work assignments.
Study abroad. Business students have many options for studying abroad as part of their business program. Many of our business students have done semester-long studies in London, Ireland, Rome, Madrid, Seville and Trier, Germany.
With a global business marketplace, study abroad opportunities give students the chance to experience different cultures. From these experiences, they bring a multicultural aspect to their organizational experiences. Moreover, study abroad helps students grow and learn about themselves, an important process for any leader or manager.
