College of Business & Technology
To give students a better foothold in their job search, the college has organized Career Days with activities that have included an etiquette dinner, mock interviews, resume and career fair prep workshops, a military science leadership reaction courses, nationally acclaimed speakers, student case competitions, a student organization bulletin board contest, and panels featuring CBT Alumni and industry experts.
Beginning in 2005, successful alumni and friends of the college have shared how they have charted successful careers.
The series was developed through the generosity of the late Dr. Robert Ferguson and his wife, Mary. Throughout his teaching career, Dr. Ferguson firmly believed that our students benefit from the depth and breadth of experience, especially by seeing and hearing from key business leaders who are illustrations of success.
