Undergraduate Career Management Program

Students at the Walker School are gaining a competitive advantage in the job market through the Walker EDGE. From internships to networking, mentoring, global travel and more, the Walker School is helping to position our undergraduate students for career success.

Internships

By partnering with different companies, Walker EDGE students have access to a wide range of internship opportunities in areas such as business administration, computer science, financial services, information technology, management and marketing. In addition to interning at companies across the United States, students from the Walker School have secured internships at companies in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Austria, Germany and Mexico.

Career Development

Mock interviews, etiquette luncheons and management courses focused on career development are helping students build their personal brands. Adding to these experiences, Industry Insight Nights connect students with industry professionals and recruiters to gain insight, advice and perspective on their careers.

Global Immersion

Students have the opportunity to explore global businesses, technology and management issues through Walker Global Hybrid Courses. Courses this year enabled students to travel to Brazil, China, Coast Rica and the United Kingdom for a global immersion experience of a lifetime.

Mentoring

It’s all about who you know, and the mentoring connections available through the Walker EDGE are a powerful avenue for students to develop their professional networks. Whether they are meeting one-on-one with Webster University alumni or top executives from the Regional Business Council, student mentees are receiving the guidance they need from a professional support system at a critical time of their career development.
