the business students who spoke to high
school seniors and their families.
The prospective students — all high school seniors — were attending the UM-wide Admissions Open House. After McPhillip’s remarks, the dozens of attendees heard from eight current business juniors and seniors about their experiences at UM, which ranged from research projects to study abroad to internships, and which demonstrated with wide range of possibilities open to business students.
“It’s an opportunity to showcase some of our top juniors and seniors, and give high school students an understanding of what a university education is supposed to be,” says McPhillip. “They see the School of Business and our students at their best.”
