By Mel Beasley, CSB Marketing Assistant

The UNCW University Scholarship Application is now open, and we are sure some of you have deleted the email thinking it’s a waste of time to even bother.

Blockchain, the distributed cryptographic ledger technology that has given rise to the cryptocurrency craze, is now becoming a building block in business school curriculum. Top business schools, such as Duke, MIT, and Harvard, have added a series of courses in blockchain technology to their programs over the past two years and Stanford University recently launched a Center for Blockchain Research. The emergence and rapid expansion of courses designed around blockchain development and cryptography should come as no surprise, as Upwork ranked blockchain as the fastest growing freelance skill in the United States for the second consecutive quarter.

Who am I?

As a north Jersey native, I always wanted to go to college out-of-state to experience something new. I heard about Cameron School of Business (CSB) through a recommendation and I liked what I had seen after researching—the quality of the academic programs, the high student graduation rate and the size of the university all appealed to me. I had never been to the Carolinas prior to coming to UNCW, but I decided to take the plunge by moving 500 miles away nonetheless. Of course, the fact that campus is close to the beach also helped my decision!

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Oct 31, 2018 9:51:00 AM
 

By Mel Beasley, CSB Marketing Assistant

Imagine. You spot the perfect internship online and apply. They call you for an interview. They promise college credit, it pays $15 per hour to start, and you get to work from your couch! What could be better than that? Absolutely nothing. Well, that is until you’ve done three weeks of work before you realize that ACME Corporation was actually the evil fictional company from Loony Tunes responsible for falling anvils and other disasters.

You’ve become the victim of an internship scam.

It didn’t used to be the case, but as the job hunt has grown more competitive, employers are zeroing in on candidates who need the least amount of training right out of the gate. True, you may have a long list of previous work history, but that summer job tossing pizza crusts in the air isn’t going to do you any favors in front of the hiring manager at that accounting management firm you’ve had your eye on for months.
