Marquette University is one of the top student activist campuses in the U.S. because of the extensive community service activities of our students. Business students have many opportunities to apply their growing knowledge of business to real situations through service to the local community. These opportunities are offered through individual courses, service learning, and student organization activities.
Service learning provides students with the opportunity to learn more about themselves and their profession by applying what they have learned in the classroom to a non-profit organization in the community.
Business faculty incorporate service learning into courses in information technology (for example, designing web pages or developing a database), business and society (finding suitable corporate partners for service organizations such as Journey House and the Badger Association of the Blind), and human resources management (designing a performance appraisal system or studying turnover and its causes).
