The College of Business has many special student program opportunities, which can enhance their experience beyond textbook learning. Check out these current and recent past projects:
The Business Profession Program a.k.a. The Passport Program - This program is aimed at preparing business students to be more competitive upon graduation in what is the most competitive workforce in recent years. The Program prepares students by exposing them to practical skills, like resume building and time management, and through networking opportunities, like career fairs and alumni events.
The Mentorship Program - This program brings students, alums, and friends of the College together for an exchange of information on education, professionalism, and aspirations. This program allows students in our geographic location to obtain valuable advice and insights from business professionals. A long term one-on-one relationship allows students to build a trusting relationship with their mentor and provides opportunities to seek career, personal, and life advice from them.
New Business Venture Competition – Open to all NMU students in 2011-12. Students will compete as individuals, or as teams of two to five members to develop a business plan that will be demonstrated before a panel of judges. Cash prizes range from $500 to $5,000.
The Superior Fund – In fall 2006, NMU’s College of Business began operating the student-managed investment fund, named the Superior Fund. The fund started with an initial sum of $200,000 and realized a profit in its first year.
