Edge Event Submission
The Trulaske Edge team is always looking for new and unique Edge point opportunities to provide students each semester. Are you interested in having your event considered for Edge points?
Trulaske students will participate in Edge programming with industry-leading professionals in a variety of events while earning a minimum of 200 Edge points required for graduation. To fit every schedule, a variety of Edge Approved events are offered each semester in person and virtually (including on demand), allowing students to create a personal programming roadmap, based on their interests and strengths. Students who earn 250 Edge points or more will be recognized with a graduation cord to celebrate their accomplishment.
In the BA 1500 course, students engage their strengths as they navigate the Trulaske College of Business, discover career opportunities in the business field, and begin to understand and develop the professional competencies necessary for personal and career advancement.
In BA 3500, students take what they have learned in the classroom and put it into practice through a professional team-based project with an actual business client. Students meet weekly with their project teams and are coached by the instructor and a graduate student project manager. Throughout the semester, students conduct market research and develop a report and presentation for the client that provides business findings and recommendations.
All Trulaske College of Business students complete an internship before graduation. While working at an internship site, the student is enrolled in a course (BA 4500) that helps guide the student's professional development. Internships allow students to develop professional experience in the business world and hone their professionalism. Internships must be approved before your start date to receive credit for BA 4500.
