In the summer of 2016, UNCW was chosen to be the host university for the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Fudan University in Shanghai and the UNC university system. UNCW and the Cameron School of Business (CSB) have had an ongoing relationship with Fudan beginning in 2005. Since 2007, Fudan University has sent faculty to teach courses in the Chinese language at UNCW - this year, professor Zhang Bangyin from Fudan is teaching in the Department of World Languages and Cultures. CSB students have consistently accounted for a third to one-half of the students taking Chinese language courses at UNCW, and Dr. George Schell, Professor of Information Systems, has worked with all of the faculty from Fudan over the past eight years.

I am a TABSA student from Spain, and I am currently working to receive a dual degree from the Cameron School of Business at UNCW and my home university, Universidad de Valencia, in Marketing Strategy and International Business. Participating in the Cameron Executive Network (CEN) Program has been one of the best things I have done during my time at UNCW. My mentor has been extremely helpful in explaining the job search process in the US. She started by identifying my skills and capabilities as well as areas of improvement to better my position myself in the business world. She coached me in resume and cover letter writing as well as in internship search and interview skills. Due to her help I was able to get an internship in a tech company in Spain. We will continue to work this year to get an internship in the US.

The Four M's

As I stepped into 890 Broadway for the first time, I was immediately enchanted by the classic elevator that carried me to the little office of one of the greatest ballet companies in the world. This little office, however, is also home to not just amazing artistic talent, but to a job that I had only dreamed of doing until this summer. The opportunity to combine my marketing degree with my lifelong passion for ballet has been incredible, and much like how marketing revolves around the four P’s (product, place, price, promotion), I have found that my internship could be summed up in a similar way, but with four M’s.

Do Your Homework To Understand Educational Offerings

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Mar 17, 2017 11:21:58 AM

Guest Blogger: Dean Robert D. Burrus, Jr. This post was originally shared on WilmingtonBiz.com on August 1, 2016.

To most people, the word “university” suggests an education-based institution in which academic degrees are conferred to individuals completing the required curriculum. One might not realize that the term can be used by any entity, for example, Trump University, PwC Open University, and Google University. None of these examples are universities in the way most people use the term: These entities use the term liberally to suggest an enhanced education in a specific area. Satisfaction with the educational offering depends largely on what one expected to get out of the experience. The use of the word “university” has the potential to become a legal matter depending on individual state and consumer protection laws. Trademark law does not prohibit the use of the word “university” in a name. The point to this is that the use of the word “university” does not necessarily imply that an institution is offering a quality educational experience.

Experiential learning is a crucial element of a college education. As defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, “An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.” Therefore, internships provide solutions for employers by assisting with workflow in an effective manner to accomplish immediate goals and through finding new team members to help grow the business and accomplish long-term goals.

Coaching the Mentee to a Successful Career

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Mar 17, 2017 11:20:51 AM

Guest Blogger: Kathy S. Behr, former pharmaceutical Marketing Research Manager, CEN Mentor

The idea for Cameron Executive Network was conceived to hook up experienced or retired business professionals with young soon-to-be business college graduates. It is a win-win situation, where both the mentor and mentee are exchanging wisdom, job search skills, and how to place yourself and your skill set on the job market. I joined CEN in Fall 2014, as I was looking for opportunities to volunteer and provide the knowledge I had gained in my pharmaceutical marketing research career.
