Dept. of Experiential Education & Career Management
"People who regard themselves as highly efficacious act, think, and feel differently from those who perceive themselves as inefficacious. They produce their own future, rather than simply foretell it." -Dr. Albert Bandura
The experiential education program at LIM College is built on a philosophy of “learning by doing” and on the belief that business and management are both an art and a science. We can effectively teach the science in a classroom but the art is something that requires direct engagement with the phenomenon under study and a degree of “practice” that develops the skills of the art form. Further, the program is built on the concept that the path to success is a path to self-awareness and increased levels of self-efficacy in areas required to make competent self-directed decisions about one's future. This belief in oneself is instilled in both our seminar and internship classes.
Each student will be required to complete 12 credits of experiential education courses broken down into three basic levels, each containing both a seminar and internship component.
- Level I: Industry Exploration Seminar & Industry Exploration Internship (3 credits)
- Level II: Career Building Seminar & Career Building Internship (3 credits)
- Level III: Senior Co-op Prep, Senior Co-op & Career Platform & Transition Courses (6 credits)
