Hands-on Learning

At JWU, you won’t just study what you love. You’ll do what you love. A major component of our educational model includes hands-on learning built right into the curriculum. You’ll gain valuable business experience and build a professional network long before you graduate.

You have the drive. JWU helps you acquire the knowledge, skills and, most importantly, the experience to excel in business.

Hands-on learning starts in the classroom, where your instructors are industry professionals with valuable insight and expertise.

Work closely with them in small classroom settings, learn industry best practices and train on career-specific tools and software.

As an intern, you can jump start your career by gaining on the job experience that sets you apart from the competition. Best of all, you’ll make networking connections with leading employers.

You'll work with your faculty advisor and our Experiential Education & Career Services team from your first term to create a career plan, and make it happen.

Community Service
Service isn’t a hobby for JWU students; it’s a chance for you to become a leader.

Work on targeted community service projects to develop the skills you need to thrive in business, while giving back to your community.

Professional Development
Career fairs and networking events with employers and alumni are just the start.

Our professional and student clubs like Collegiate DEX and Toastmasters Society connect you with guest speakers, leadership training, and diverse professional development opportunities.

Study Abroad
At JWU, hands-on learning extends across the globe for JWU students. In our Study Abroad programs, train with experts all over the world, gain global perspective in your field and make lasting career connections.
