Starting this fall, College of Business Administration students enrolled in the Career Professionalism class series will acquire an edge in their career preparations.

Glassdoor, the leading global jobs and career community, will be integrated into the curriculum – the first time this has occurred in higher education.

“We are working to build an experience for students that gives them a distinct advantage in the marketplace and this partnership is another asset in delivering on that experience,” said UCF College of Business Administration dean, Paul Jarley.

Glassdoor, founded in 2007, boasts more than 25 million members in 190 countries and offers more than six million company reviews and ratings, as well as salary reports, interview questions and reviews, benefits reviews and ratings for more than 300,000 companies.

“Our Office of Professional Development and the corresponding class are truly innovative opportunities to provide our students with access to information, resources and people that will make a difference in their education; and it sets the UCF College of Business apart in the landscape of business education,” said Jarley.

Starting in the 2014 catalog year, College of Business Administration undergraduate students are required to take four one-credit “Career Professionalism” classes that are intended to prepare students for the professional workforce.
