Tuesday, May 3, 2016 - 10:54 am


At the Heider College of Business, you will earn more than just a business degree. You’ll receive a transformative business education from a Jesuit university that is known for developing ethical and socially responsible business leaders.

Whether you’re one of Heider’s 980 undergraduate or 400 graduate students, the school’s comprehensive education focuses on you and is firmly rooted in the real business world. You will learn from nationally and internationally recognized faculty who bring professional business experience to the classroom. And you will benefit from deep connections with the business community and the school’s local Omaha setting — home to 50 Fortune 500 companies.

The Heider College is among the top two percent of business schools worldwide to be accredited in both business and accounting by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB). U.S. News & World Report ranks Heider among the top 100 business programs in the United States. Not only that, but 98 percent of the school’s recent business graduates were employed within six months of graduation.

Nothing is more impressive to the modern business employer than a resume packed-full of relevant, real-world experience. Whether this has been achieved via internships, externships, temporary positions or part-time employment, relevant experience is always looked upon favorably by employers.

“Small companies can often offer a greater range of challenges and learning experiences,” The Guardian Jobs continues. “The hours might be longer, but you’ll also have the opportunity of seeing different sides to the business, gaining a greater understanding of how the company works in the process. This is helpful if you’re not completely clear on your career focus, as you’ll have the chance to be involved in a variety of projects.”

To set yourself on the path towards a glowing graduate career, the best thing you can do is select a business program that provides in-built work opportunities and outstanding industry links.

At schools like University of the Pacific's Eberhardt School of Business and Creighton University’s Heider College of Business, for example, facilities are in place to ensure students are given the best chance to succeed in the professional business sphere. At Heider, The John P. Fahey Career Center, as a part of the Creighton EDGE, is dedicated to assisting students and alumni in exploring, developing and implementing career goals that reflect their unique and individual goals within the real world of work.

Through attending this innovative Center, students leave instilled with the ability to:

  •     Explore career opportunities
  •     Develop an understanding of the real world of work
  •     And effectively implement career goals

Creighton University recognizes that a strong and collaborative relationship exists between academic and career ambition, so the John P. Fahey Career Center is specially designed to drive students towards their full, professional potential. Students who become familiar with the Career Centre resources early on, as Freshmen or Sophomores, are far more prepared for the transitions they face after graduation.

When you consider that 99 percent of Heider College leavers find employment within six months of graduation, you start to understand the extent to which real-world work experience is valued by the modern-day employer.
