Bring NWU’s faculty expertise to your workplace for professional development experiences. NWU professors regularly present on topics ranging from career advancement to fostering organizational leadership. Presentations can take the form of “lunch-and-learns,” webinars, mini-lectures or trainings matched to your needs.

Spot talent

Your NWU partnership enables your organization to post job openings through our Career Center's job recruiting website, Handshake. Post full-time, part-time and internship positions. Your presence on Handshake increases your applicants and expands your organization’s visibility within the Nebraska Wesleyan community.

Increase resources with interns

NWU interns do valuable work for your organization. By integrating them into your team, you expand your future hiring pool with talent that truly understands your organization’s mission and culture. Interns provide an extra hand to help your company meet goals or finish projects.

Gain insights through capstone projects

NWU’s MBA students and undergraduate seniors directly collaborate with businesses through their capstone projects. These projects benefit partner organizations with well-crafted small-business marketing plans, valuable industry research, recommendations for business expansion, and multifaceted business plans for startups.

Benefit from practicum students
