Launch Career Center

In response to the need for ongoing career development, networking, and virtual vocational communications, the Freed-Hardeman College of Business utilizes the Launch Virtual Career Center. The center facilitates connections between potential employers and business students and graduates. The center includes the Tibbals Studio, a physical space on the third floor of the Brown-Kopel Business Center for students to participate in virtual interviews, networking events, and other virtual activities. The area provides a professional setting that gives students confidence when making first impressions with employers.

Internships are also a key component of professional development and career readiness strategies for many students. Alumni and friends of the University have an incredible opportunity to help students maximize their potential by participating in the Launch Career Center and providing internships for our current business students.
