Experiential Learning Center

 

The Graham School of Management Experiential Learning Center provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to engage in a hands-on learning experience conducted in field based settings with relevant firms outside the traditional classroom environment.

Primarily identified as an "internship" it is, in reality, an introductory process supported by collegiate level of courses and classroom experiences. Students also have the opportunity to apply their internship experience toward a college credit elective.

The desired outcome is to help students develop marketable skills and prepare them of productive careers after graduation. This is accomplished by forging academic learning with experiential learning to instill new knowledge in the student.

The Graham School of Management encourages all students to pursue internships during their time at Saint Xavier University. Students will research career paths and employers while constructing and articulating their 'personal brands'.
