Dear Students,

“Your success is our business,” is more than just a slogan to the faculty and staff here at AUM. We sincerely want you to be successful and, to that end, are busy updating and adding new student services to benefit you. However, we need your help.

Did you know that only 50% of US students who enter college actually graduate, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education? This is a disturbing statistic, especially since college graduates will live longer, be healthier, and make more money over the course of their lifetime. The benefits of an AUM college education are far reaching.

In order to make that dream a reality, we need you to be fully engaged in the AUM experience. We need you to:
1.              Utilize Degree Works

2.              Register with Warhawk Jobs, CareerBeam and CareerShift

3.              Utilize the services provided by the College of Business, Office of Student Engagement & Success, and the University.

4.              Participate in College of Business student activities

We know your schedules are already jam packed, but this is important. Each of these services will help you to maximize the full value of your AUM education and move you closer to that coveted college degree. If you have any questions, or need help, contact the Office of Student Engagement & Success at BusinessSuccessCenter@aum.edu or 334-244-3479.

In closing, we just want to know one thing - RU Handlin’ Business?

Sincerely,

The Office of Student Engagement and Success

Broadening my horizons by studying abroad

by Megan Hughes | Jan 08, 2015
So today I went to the study abroad fair on campus with the intent of [pardon the pun] broadening my horizons. The event was planned out very well, but each of the trips seemed too exclusive for business majors like me. You had to be a biology major, or an English major, or anything along those lines. On top of that, you have to be a part of the honors program which I am not a part of. I felt a little bit discouraged because I want to travel, especially considering I'm an international business major, but there weren't any options for me. However, I when I went to see the Associate Dean later that day, I mentioned my predicament and she brought to my attention that one of the professors in the College of Business is working on getting a trip to Japan together for business majors. That was very good news to me which shows me that the College of a Business is very aware of its student's needs. It’s a very good reminder of why I’m in the College of Business. Most of the professors here are very open to student suggests and will work to make these suggestions happen.
