The Western Carolina University College of Business emphasizes engaged, integrated, and meaningful experiential learning. In addition to internships, hands-on experiences are required in capstone courses, and curriculum enrichment and reinforcement is provided by the various centers in the college. A number of students also participate in a wide variety of service learning activities with community partners. Activities include serving as peer mediators, performing audits for nonprofits, and developing information technology options for local organizations. The College of Business calls this business-focused, engagement-driven training our Business Ready® approach.
