Leverage Your Strengths

We’re all about strength. And no, we don’t mean weightlifting. We’re talking about your personal strengths – what drives you, where you excel at, what makes you “you.” As part of your leadership development, we’ll help you discover your natural talents and determine how you can build them for success. As a first-year student, you’ll be given a CliftonStrengths® assessment and your own personal, peer coach to help you build an individualized plan for your career goals, academic pursuits and personal well-being.

We know everyone takes a different path. No two students are the same, so why should they take all the same classes? We believe in giving every College of Business student the power to mold a major that matches their unique passions – which is why we offer 11 majors, 12 minors and 34+ additional programs to mix and match together.

Co-Create Your Experience

You’re going to college to learn so you can do stuff in the future you can’t do now. Nebraska Business offers several opportunities to help you get the most out of college, develop skills and experience, and prepare for the future. Beyond your normal classroom, there are at least 34+ ways to co-create your experience here. Some programs, events and opportunities include:

Learn Business By Doing Business

Nebraska Business courses integrate hands-on learning opportunities so you can gain insight and experience by rolling up your sleeves and learn by doing.

But, what does this mean for you? It means no two days of class are the same. You’re learning through case studies, projects for actual clients, company visits, simulations, in-class activities, role-playing and guest speakers.

1-on-1 Support Means You Are Our Focus

By believing in the power of every person, we do big things together at Nebraska. We prioritize providing you with 1-on-1 support throughout your college experience.

What does this mean for you? From day one, you have access to free tutoring for business courses through the Teaching and Learning Center. Faculty host office hours where you can get help or ask questions. Dean Farrell also hosts weekly office hours where you can stop by, introduce yourself and talk about an idea you have or your future plans. When exploring majors or planning classes to take, you meet with an academic advisor who helps you graduate on time and also connects you with opportunities and resources to set you up for success. Additionally, the career coaches in the award-winning Business Career Center guide you in preparation for internship and job searches through the Professional Enhancement Program and 1-on-1 career coaching appointments.
