Personal attention drives School of Business and Economics students toward success

The College of Professional Studies (CPS) at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point was created in the early 1970s to house many of the university’s pre-professional programs. Our college’s majors and graduate programs are as diverse, but their common thread is student professional preparation.

Why choose the College of Professional Studies at UW-Stevens Point?

Pre-professional majors require students to work a semester or longer actually on the job in an apprentice role, where they are graded by both university faculty and the practitioners under whom they work. This culminating experience is called different things by different majors: student teaching, internship, externship or clinical experiences. College of Professional Studies students achieve acceptance into prestigious internships at a rate higher than the national average.

Anderson Classroom to Career Center

The Keith and Tammy Anderson Classroom to Career (C2C) Center provides a single location for School of Business and Economics students to learn about majors, receive career and financial support, and discover internship and professional development opportunities. The C2C Center also serves as a hub for business outreach and event planning.

“When deciding to attend UW-Stevens Point, I knew I wanted to stay close to my family. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as a non-traditional transfer student. Little did I know, the university and its community would grow to be a part of my family.”
