The Integrated Core Experience (ICE) is carefully constructed to give students a vantage into the world of business from multiple angles, integrating the analytic, strategic, and behavioral skills they’ll need to tackle real-world problems, with projects from corporate sponsors. ICE is required for all third-year students, with 12 credit hours in the fall semester and 9 credit hours in the spring semester.
ICE provides cutting-edge benefits rarely found at the undergraduate level. Rather than offering traditional, independent core courses, the faculty engages students in a coherent, integrated series of sessions focusing on business theory and practice. ICE blocks of 40-45 students learn by working in small teams, as well as with a team of seven faculty and corporate leaders, to solve real-world business problems.
