2018 Global X-Culture Conference and Symposium in Italy.

Blugolds among finalists in global competition

A highlight for many management students is participating in UW-Eau Claire's Cross-Cultural Leadership course, which requires students to participate in the annual X-Culture competition. The semester-long project pairs UWEC students with other students from around the world, challenging them to solve a real-life problem global businesses are facing.

Among the 5,500+ students worldwide who participated was UWEC management major Andrea Gonzalez, whose team scored in the top 0.3%. Andrea recently returned from the project symposium in Calgary, Canada, an invitation-based event that rewards 150 finalists for their contributions. 

“Participating in X-Culture has helped me understand the importance of intercultural communication and experiences," she said. "It has also helped me with my job search. In every interview I’ve had, I’ve spoken about this project and each time, the employer is very impressed and curious to hear more."

Why management at UW-Eau Claire?

Experiential learning. As a management major, you will have the opportunity to learn by doing through study abroad, career fairs, competitions and student clubs and organizations. By learning outside of the classroom, you will discover new ways of thinking and make valuable connections. 

Interdisciplinary education. In addition to an in-demand degree, you'll also gain skills in a variety of disciplines. Explore topics in human resources, supply chain management, operations management, accounting and business writing. This wide range of knowledge and experience will set you apart from other job candidates.

Internship opportunities. Management students are highly encouraged to participate in internships — some of which even count for credit. These experiences can help you get your foot in the door at places where you might be interested in working. 

Connection to local employers. Annual on-campus Career Conferences and a Client Communication and Management Career Fair bring potential employers right to you. These events are excellent opportunities to network and submit your resume for current and future job openings. 

Expert faculty and individualized learning. Our knowledgeable and supportive faculty prepare graduates to be effective managers. They know exactly what employers and organizations are looking for and how you can best set yourself up for success.
