Whatever career path you follow, there will come a time when a clear understanding of an idea’s relationship with commerce and business becomes crucial to your resume.
ScienceWorks prepares students to enter the business world with the kinds of skills and knowledge employers want. Understanding economics, consumer behavior, cost accounting and financial statements — and knowing how to discuss them confidently with partners, superiors, investors and stakeholders — can make you stand out as a superior professional, business person and citizen.
Through ESNS courses, seminars, workshops and business plan exercises, students develop skills in written and oral communication, finance, accounting, graphical presentation, marketing, management, intellectual property, business ethics and more.
The program also provides students with unique opportunities for internships through its partnerships with CATI, the Center for Advanced Technology and Innovation in Racine, Wis.; the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance; the Racine County Economic Development Corporation; the Kenosha Area Business Alliance; and business leaders from many companies.
