From their first term, students get inside their field of study, turning theory into practice while developing the knowledge and skills employers seek, setting themselves apart from the competi-tion. Faculty with industry experience get to know students on a personal level and actively help them network to find the internships and job opportunities best suited to their career ambitions. The end result? Students build résumés with relevant work experiences, expand their network of industry contacts, and acquire the knowledge to think critically, analyze problems and communicate effectively. They learn what’s needed to become leaders of their professions and are uniquely prepared to succeed in shifting industries and entrepreneurial ventures. An Innovative Leader Inspiring Professional Success Lately, just about every college is talking about experiential education. And that’s because it works. At Johnson & Wales we’ve been perfecting this approach for 100 years. It’s why we’re world renowned for providing students with the optimal blend of intellectual development, industry-focused education, résumé-building work experiences, leadership opportunities and an uncommon depth of career services. It’s also why both Forbes and U.S. News & World Report rank JWU among the best colleges and universities in the U.S. and why the National Society for Experiential Education conferred upon JWU its highest honor: the 2014 William M. Burke Presidential Award for Excellence in Experiential Education. Experience your future now. JWU . EDU RHODE ISL AND MONTHLY I HIGHER LE ARNING I 2015 15
