Master's of Business Administration
Distinguished Lecture Series
The Distinguished Lecture Series Program provides students and faculty with an opportunity to interact with prominent executives for an open exchange of views on current issues. Through this vital program, executives are brought into the classroom to offer students first-hand information about the complexities of the business world, while inspiring them to seek new ways to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
The College of Business Student to Career Program provides professional development opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
The program provides one-on-one consultation and assistance with resume, interview prep and follow up, professional dress, and networking. Student to Career facilitates annual programs such as Ticket 2 Ride (T2R), Nashville Career Fair Trip, and Table for 10. The Business Professional Clothes Closet runs out of this program and we facilitate student involvement and registration for the COBBOT Foundation Dinner, Meet the Firms, Distinguished Lecture Series and other professional events.
MBA students have the opportunity to participate in MBA Programs in Belgium, Netherlands, or France with students from around the world, and have the option to participate in shorter travel-study trips (7-10 days) through semester-long courses.
The study abroad experience forever changes views about other cultures and increases interest in working in a business environment that is more diverse or global. The challenge of traveling and/or living abroad increases self confidence and global understanding.
"My time at Tech has presented many enjoyable opportunities however, the study abroad experience is by far my favorite."
- Bailey Womble, Tennessee Tech MBA '20
"I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to study abroad to take that opportunity. The things you learn about other cultures and societies just can't be measured unless you go experience it for yourself."
- Hayden Alexander, Tennessee Tech MBA '19
