Student Activities and Events


This career development program was created for students to improve their interviewing skills, to provide networking opportunities, and to connect students with potential employers. IGNITE was originally conceived for majors in the Department of Management and the Department of Marketing, but it has been expanded to include all departments and majors in the Jones College of Business (JCOB).  JCOB majors can join IGNITE and earn a certificate while completing career development activities. For details and a complete schedule of IGNITE events, visit the IGNITE webpage.
