With a world class faculty, we offer a personal, individualized educational experience that prepares students for sustained career success.  Our curriculum includes the knowledge and skills most sought after by employers such as critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and communication.  Our graduate programs build upon the knowledge of an undergraduate degree to prepare students for enhanced career success.  We are proud of the fact that our students are highly in demand as evidenced by exceptional placement rates for graduates at all levels.

Professional development tailored to the personal goals of each student is our objective, achieved through the Davis College Center for Professional Development.  Students can speak with a career counselor to explore career options, take advantage of VMock software for resume review and the Big Interview platform for mock interview practice.  Internships or practicum experiences are recommended and students can apply to be a part of the Phins Up career mentorship program.  Graduate students may have distinct development needs so opportunities are tailored for each program and designed to help grow a professional network for upwards advancement.

I welcome you to the Dolphin family.  You will be hard pressed to find a college more dedicated to enabling your success than the Davis College of Business.
