Business Career Programs:
           High Touch + High Tech = Student Success

The Business Career Programs office was created to assist COBI students in securing internships during their undergraduate careers and full-time placement upon graduation. We do this by constant expansion of our employer network which has seen consistent growth each year. Our office strives to provide the necessary resources to our students so that they may conduct their own tailored job searches that fit their individual needs.

Business Career Programs offers COBI students unique preparation and resources for the ever competitive job market:

  • Career Development classes that begin in the student's Sophomore year
  • Mock Interviews with real-life employers
  • A dedicated Career Development Instructor
  • Bi-Annual Job Fairs
  • Resume Critique Sessions
  • Etiquette Dinners & Power Networking Information Sessions
  • Dress for Success Seminars


The Business Career Programs office connects students with local and sometimes nationwide companies to complete internships in order to obtain real-world work experience while earning course credit.
