In 2012, the School of Business Administration and Economics established the Center for Student Success, an initiative that is designed to support the School’s goal of attracting, supporting, and retaining high caliber students, engaged alumni, and top local and national-level employers. Student preparation and success are the Center's highest priorities and career services is just one of the many supports that the Center provides.
