The BMSI Experience

The Freeman faculty designed the BMSI program for non-business majors with a curriculum to expand their critical thinking skills and prepare them to address business issues and problems. In two five-week sessions, students will learn the language of business and how to communicate effectively in the workplace. On-campus housing is available, so attending daily classes couldn't be more convenient. 

BSM Careers

Career Planning

The BMSI strives to create awareness of how business intersects with a career in any field. During the course, students will complete a Career Assessment to better understand their skills, interests and motivators.
