Questions?

Contact Greta Fenley with any inquiries.

Target Your Future (TYF) offers a small, group setting to BBA students for those “off the record” questions with industry professionals, professors and upperclassmen. The seven-week program covers career topics designed to increase your knowledge, experience and confidence. This new insight will broaden your perspective on potential industries and employers, and help build your professional network. TYF strengthens your career decision-making skills through personal exploration, mentorships and networking.

Building Connections, Fostering Success

Seminar Series

The weekly seminar series offers an opportunity for small roundtable discussions on a variety of career-related topics. Panel sessions include industry professionals, professors, mentors, and upperclassmen. Students are able to connect with employers recruiting undergraduate business students, and learn what it takes to be their ideal candidate.

Student Mentors

Students are divided into small groups and matched with mentors, who are typically former TYF participants. Student mentors offer valuable insight on career development to their mentees, and they organize networking and social activities for the group.

Professional Mentor Program

Students are matched with professionals in an industry area of their interest. Professional mentors share personal experience and knowledge through a phone and email conversations.
