Changes are coming to global business at Gabelli
Spring is a time for new beginnings, and the global business curriculum at Lincoln Center has some new beginnings of its own.
The biggest change? New secondary concentrations and minors.
Starting in fall 2017, there are two additional minors for Lincoln Center undergraduates that previously only had been offered at Rose Hill: sustainable business, and business law and ethics. The decision to add these options grew out of the faculty and administration’s recognition that Gabelli School students care about the power of business to contribute positively to society.
Similarly, Lincoln Center students now can consider a suite of secondary concentrations including social innovation, services marketing, strategic branding, and marketing analytics. Previously available only to Rose Hill students, each capitalizes on current employment trends.
Two new secondary concentrations will also debut for students on both campuses: healthcare management and digital media and technology. Students interested in any of these tracks should speak with their academic advisors.
Finally, there has been a change to the “career exploration” integrated project, which students used to complete as second-semester sophomores. This course allows students to build their career-seeking skills, including interviewing and networking. Sophomores found that spring of their second year was far too late to start developing these skills, so students now take the career-exploration course as freshmen.
“I think it’s better to have the course earlier,” said Victoria Cleveland, BS ’18. “By second year, most students are already applying for internships and will need to utilize the skills taught in the course.
“Having the course taught in freshman year gives students a head-start and advantage over other college students applying for the same internships,” she added.
Now, who said change isn’t a good thing?
