Freshman Business Initiative

The Freshman Business Initiative is a learning community designed to help freshmen successfully transition to college and to Mays Business School. Each fall semester, approximately 90% of the incoming freshman class choose to participate in this program by taking BUSN 101. FBI combines large group lectures with peer-led small groups to introduce Mays core competencies, teach frameworks for thinking and acting as ethical business leaders, encourage active learning strategies, challenge personal ownership of values and worldview, and connect students to a network of their peers. Freshmen can enroll in the FBI (BUSN 101) during their summer registration conferences.
