Why the OSU College of Business?

You're a Business Student From Day One 

Innovation Nation is our living–learning community for first-year pre-business students. You'll live in one of our business-themed residence halls with other pre-business students where you'll dive into a variety of opportunities like seminars, workshops, mentoring opportunities, networking events and guest-speakers. We think it is really important that you have an opportunity to engage in professional development, personal development and leadership-skill development beginning the day you step on campus. 

Dedicated Advising Team

From day one until you graduate, we provide you with an advising staff to assist you in choosing the right classes to keep you on track to complete your Business degree and achieve your goals. This means you do not have to wait until you are of upperclassman status to get major-specific advising. Our advisors work ONLY with College of Business students so you won’t have to worry about availability.  

Connection to Industry

The Career Success Center is dedicated to the College of Business and addresses the unique needs of business students as prepare to be profession-ready employees ready to make and immediate impact. They conduct seminars and one-on-one consultations with students on topics of resume writing, interviewing strategies, securing internships, and jobs and truly make our graduates stand out.  

 

Industry Engagement

 

 

 

 

 

Fridays in Austin bring industry professionals together on campus around a theme to explore how each major works within that industry (what does accounting look like in healthcare? How about management?). The theme may also center on a particular major and explores it in more depth. These topics connect with what students are learning in class, encourages engagement with peers and distinguished business professionals, and provides critical networking opportunities.

Internships

Internships are an important part of the undergraduate business experience. Employers and graduate schools prioritize resumes by those with one or more career-related experience. Internships are also crucial for students to make informed, strategic career decisions. Career Success Center staff and online resources can help you to develop a thorough understanding of the process industries and companies follow when recruiting their students.

 

 

Cultivating Excellence

The Dean’s Academy is a cohort-based experience for high achieving freshman and transfer students in the College of Business who wish to maximize the educational and experiential aspects of their college experience. The Academy encourages intellectual curiosity and active engagement in the educational process, and seeks to graduate next generation business leaders who are visionaries and responsible citizens.

Focus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Austin Entrepreneurship Program is one of the largest entrepreneurship programs in the United States, allowing freshmen to become fully immersed in entrepreneurial learning and activities, including the opportunity to create their own business.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Through the Arthur Stonehill International Business exchange program, students will study abroad at one of our 12 partner universities. You’ll take College of Business courses, so it does not delay your graduation timeline and the classes are taught in English. By participating in this experience, you’ll satisfy requirements for the International Business major. As an added benefit, students pay OSU tuition for their term abroad (less OSU fees and travel costs).
