What Recruiters Say About Our Students

We target WSU students because of their hard working family foundations that ready them for the workplace. Eager, passionate, competitive, and willing to learn are a few great characteristics.

Carson College of Business students are a delight to work with. They are able to do more with less and compliment business savvy with an incredible work ethic and desire to succeed. In fact, I have been so consistently impressed with college of business students that nearly 30% of my management workforce are WSU Alumni! Go cougs!

It’s always a pleasure to work with the students and faculty of the Carson College of Business. The level of preparation and coaching that the students receive is evident and so valued as an employer. I always know that the events we attend will be of the highest quality – no detail left unchecked. Furthermore, the amount of care the faculty has for the students is palpable. The success of the student is the success of the faculty team. I look forward to continuing our partnership with the Carson School of Business in recruiting the best and brightest.
