The Opus College of Business is offering three classes on campus during J-term: MKTG 490, which serves as a MKTG elective, BLAW 352, a Business Law elective, and FINC 300, which is ONLY for business minors or other majors outside business. If you are a business major who needs FINC 321, DO NOT TAKE FINC 300.

Joe and his fellow students spent the midterm break exploring the continent. Read more here . . .
The Career Development Center serves students with their vocational and career learning. They work with undecided students on choosing their majors, and later assist students from all major fields to develop required skills as they seek internships, employment or graduate education.
Strongly consider attending their seminars and check out their events at: http://www.stthomas.edu/careerdevelopment/events/default.asp
Just a reminder that there are no classes on Friday due to midterm break!
The Undergraduate Program Advisors will be out in the morning for a conference, but have appointments available later in the day.
Good Luck with your exams!
In the Opus College of Business we believe that the two advisor approach is helpful in ensuring that undergraduate business students learn about their major field(s) of interest with their faculty advisors while also making sure to fulfill university requirements with their business program advisors.
