Beyond the Classroom/Outreach (SSB)
ABOUT Beyond the Classroom/Outreach (SSB)
Networking in business is key to making contacts and opening doors. The Stafford School of Business understand this and provides opportunities for students to meet future employers, colleagues and customers. Students visit with local and national companies such as the TiftArea YMCA, Tifton Chamber of Commerce, Federal Reserve in Atlanta and Chick-fil-A. In addition to building post-graduation contacts, these meetings allow students to learn about strategic planning, logistics and inventory management and business etiquette.
Internships and Simulations
Internships and simulations are additional activities that allow students to put their classroom skills to work. Students fulfill internships in marketing, management, human resources, insurance and accounting businesses. Simulations in strategic management provide students with the opportunities to manage their own businesses in a competitive environment.
Students in the Stafford School of Business are required to undertake at least one 3-credit internship as part of their degree requirement. The purpose of the internship program is to integrate classroom knowledge with real-world learning experiences, gain valuable work experience, and to develop a network of industry contacts.
