The UTC Summer Business Experience offers the opportunity to interact one-on-one with university professors and successful business professionals through a variety of hands-on workshops, field trips and seminars. In addition, students will get a preview of college life and the Chattanooga experience through recreational events that include athletic activities, picnics, visits to area attractions and more.
The Business Experience includes visits to top employers of the Rollins College of Business school graduates, including national and regional leaders in the manufacturing, retail, and service industries.
Students will experience personal interaction with top-level executives as well as behind-the-scenes tours.
Program participants will explore each of the business disciplines – accounting, finance, economics, marketing, management, management science, information systems – in interactive formats designed to provide insight into those disciplines and potential business career paths.
