Weatherhead equips undergraduate students with the knowledge and skills needed to realize professional aspirations in a business or non-profit setting, but our role does not end there. A vast array of university resources and services exist to assist undergraduates with interest assessment, career exploration, career planning and decision-making, and finding internships and full-time employment.
Resources and Services
The University Career Center is a primary resource for undergraduate career assistance. Weatherhead undergraduates, meanwhile, launch their career preparation during their sophomore year via MGMT 250 – Managing Organizations and People I, a course that covers fundamental business topics, including human resources, labor relations, and organizational behavior, and that also features career development activities. As part of the coursework, students research career options and learn important skills for securing internships and gaining experience.
CWRU’s affiliations with hundreds of companies, non-profit organizations, and government agencies in Cleveland and around the world make it easy to gain work experience. Summer internships and semester-long co-op opportunities abound, and our Action Learning course for seniors includes our distinctive “consulting boot camp”; students follow this intensive experience up by putting into practice all that they have learned in a real-life consulting job for a local company.
