A new collaboration between the College of Business and a major corporate partner provides undergraduates with jobs, leadership training, and firm footing on their career paths.
Dr. Audrey Blume, chair of the Business Management Program, met with leaders in recruiting and career services at Bank of America’s Delaware office to review the details for the 16-month BOA Leader Development Program.
Wilmington University senior business students are encouraged to apply to this full-time program, which will begin in June. Students will receive pay that is the equivalent of a BOA manager, as well as employee benefits. Students who successfully complete the program will be offered full-time, permanent positions with BOA.
The initiative reflects WilmU’s dedication to education and programs that enhance student work experiences, notes Dr. Kathy S. Kennedy-Ratajack, COB dean.
“This partnership between Bank of America and Wilmington University demonstrates our commitment to strong industry partnerships that provide our students with employment and career advancement opportunities,” she says.
