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

The Windy City

by Megan Hughes | Jan 08, 2015
One of the best opportunities I have had at AUM was going to Chicago to financial district with the Economics club. At the financial district we were able to walk the floor at the CME Group and see all the stock and futures trading taking place. We also got a tour of the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Federal Reserve. We even got to meet the President of the Chicago Federal Reserve which is a huge deal because he is one of the most influential people in terms of US monetary policy, like interest rates. It's just amazing that he took the time out of his schedule to meet with a few college students from Montgomery, Alabama. He didn’t even get upset when the professor who planned the trip debated with him a bit on things like whether interest rates should be negative. As a matter of fact, he actually appreciated seeing how interested we were in his work. The trip was all around very fun and I made friends with the group that I went with. These are the opportunities that really make your college experience a memorable one. I can honestly say that up until going on that trip, that I was still on the fence as to whether or not I should still be a business major. Being in that environment on the trip really sealed the deal for me.
