Within the last year, the Whitworth School of Business has dramatically increased the amount of experiential learning its students receive. Experience-based business curricula give students the chance to gain exposure to the business world and to develop a professional skill set. Core strengths added to the program include mock interviews with local business leaders, a heavier emphasis on internships, and increased participation in student-run clubs such as the Whitworth Student Investment Group, and in the Inland Northwest Business Plan Competition.
