What is LAUNCH?

Strategically engage.

LAUNCH is a program that exposes students to strategic engagement opportunities, and empowers them to make purposeful choices in designing their student experience.

Who is LAUNCH for?

Business majors in their second semester through their fifth semester are automatically included on LAUNCH communications. Non-Business majors are eligible to receive LAUNCH communications by opting in below.

Academic
Your academic excellence tells future employers, mentors, and others around you that YOU seized every opportunity to "raise the bar" at the School of Business. Whether it's taking on a minor, meeting one-on-one with an advisor, attending workshops, or becoming a mentor--you can achieve it with LAUNCH.
Experiential Learning
Choosing to engage beyond the classroom is imperative in standing out amongst your peers. Become an active member of an organization, volunteer in your community, attend a business lecture series, or participate in case competitions - YOU determine your experiential learning engagement!
Diverse
Many companies and graduate schools desire candidates who have the ability to work well with people from many cultural backgrounds. Taking steps to increase your cultural competence and better understand the world around you will undoubtedly enrich and transform your student experience. Explore your opportunities today!
Developing Professionalism
Developing professionalism in your early years of college allows you to successfully navigate new experiences and new connections with ease. Develop and practice techniques to present yourself professionally in all aspects--email etiquette, social media presence, handshakes, and more!
