At Wilmington University, many students get a head-start on their careers while earning their degrees.
Dr. Audrey Blume, chair of the Business Management Program, and Kim Plusch, assistant director, Employer Development and Career Counseling, worked with leaders in recruiting and career services at Bank of America’s Delaware office on a year-long BOA Leader Development Program. Students were paid manager-level salaries while building their business skills.
Three students completed the BOA program during their senior years in the College of Business and have secured good positions with the firm. They are now on the job full-time at BOA.
