Adding Value to the First-Year Experience: Embedding Self and Major Exploration in the College of Business Curriculum
Damminger, Joanne K.; Potter, Gregory C.; Pritchard, Robert E.
American Journal of Business Education, v2 n3 p49-56 2009
This paper details the First-Year Career Development Program (First-Year Program)--a component of a comprehensive multi-year program designed to guide business students through self-assessment and the selection of an appropriate business major and ultimately to prepare them to secure professional career positions. The First-Year Program is designed to integrate student self-assessment and career and business major exploration into the First-Year Experience. A survey of students who participated in the First-Year Program indicated a high level of student satisfaction. It further indicated that participants were more positive about completing their degree programs at the regional university where the First-Year Program is conducted. The First-Year Program was developed collaboratively by Career and Academic Planning Center professionals and College of Business faculty.
