As the ‘Crown Jewel’ of the Smith School, our students are incisive, inquisitive, internationally focused and influential -- did we mention entrepreneurial, motivated and professional? They come from diverse backgrounds and are eager to do what is required to succeed in their job search and career.
The Smith Undergraduate Student Association (SUSA), 25 clubs and the SmithPeer Mentor Program provide these students with a variety of leadership and professional development opportunities. Many undergraduates take advantage of study abroad experiences, too.
Our undergraduates are highly sought after by recruiters across the nation. For example, Smith accounting majors graduate with eligibility to sit for the CPA exam and are heavily recruited by the Big Four and other accounting firms.
|Our eight undergraduate majors are:|
|Information Systems||International Business|
|Operations Management & Business Analytics||Supply Chain Management|
Our work with our undergraduates starts day one on campus. We do a ‘War for Talent’ program for all freshman to get them into the mindset of how the four years ahead of them helps develop their careers beyond Smith. By offering a wide variety of career resources and encouraging our students to visit Career Services early and often, we ensure our students have a bright career ahead.
