02 | College of Business and Economics Provides Real-World Knowledge
Javier Serna aims for the top. “My career ambition is to become a CEO of a Fortune 500 company,” he says. “My business program is providing me the knowledge to attain such a title,” mentioning not his only course work but also the workshops, job fairs, and guest speakers he has experienced in programs coordinated by the College of Business Administration and Economics.
“The faculty here is great,” Serna says. “All my professors know my name and attempt to know everyone on a personal basis. They are flexible about their office hours and always respond to e-mails. Best of all, they push their students to excel and are willing to help in any way possible.”
Serna is impressed by the importance the faculty puts on networking. “It’s the way toward success in this global economy,” he believes.
One assignment Serna found especially helpful required him to put together a
business writing portfolio consisting of various kinds of letters. “At the end of the semester I revised all my work and put it on stationery that I can give to future employers to show them the kind of work I can produce.”
