“I chose human resource management because it gives me flexibility to take a more in-depth look at a specific area in business,” says Stephania. “North Central does a great job allowing students to pursue the type of career they want without having to stick to generic majors.”

Stephania’s classes have expanded her view of the business world and she plans to expand her views even further by studying abroad. “With North Central’s help, I’m looking at studying in Italy at the Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan. It offers challenging courses in business that could help me in the future.”

Stephania is keeping her eye on the many internships that focus on business-type careers. “Our Career Development office is always willing to discuss internship opportunities and help you prepare for them with editing resumes or practicing interviews.”

Stephania plans to pursue law school and a career in health care administration.
