Abstract

Less than two years ago, I felt stranded as I decided to embark on a journey to maximize my success and experience at the Jack Welch College of Business & Technology (WCOBT). Previously being an athlete, I missed out on programs offered to first-year students, and felt there were significant barriers to get involved within the WCOBT.

As part of the Welch Scholarship, my project created an opportunity for students to make up ground: gain certifications, obtain course credits, and provide other incentives for a program open to all students. The survey results indicated there was a significant demand for such program. 82 students were interested in this program, compared to the 27 participants that attended the Freshman Pre-Fall Business Program just last year. The plan is to be implemented this winter to all interested business students, entitled the "Pre-Spring for Business Program".

Resume workshops, networking with guest speakers, and collaborating on projects will be a few of the activities offered. This specialized experience will be open for all interested students, and will be extremely valuable to their personal and professional development.
