Want to earn a truly unique business degree? Check out the Bachelor of Innovation (BI) in Business Administration program at UCCS. No other university currently offers the BI degree. Business students pursuing the BI team up to tackle long-term projects with actual companies. One team helped the Colorado Model Railroad Museum explore funding options to be used for programming and building expansion. Another team created a new website for a pest control company. Just like these students, you’ll use your innovative mindset to make a positive impact. If you’re seeking even more professional development you won’t have to look too far. As a junior or senior you can participate in the College of Business’ Career Coaching program. In this program you will tour local companies to see what they offer and how they operate. For example, in 2015 students visited Borealis Fat Bikes and Epicentral Coworking right in Colorado Springs. You’ll also receive one-on-one support from a career coach. Before you know it you’ll be a resume-writing, interview-acing, networking machine! UCCS provides opportunities; it’s up to you to take advantage of them.
