Mitchell G. Kositzky

Much of Mitchell’s college career revolved around one idea: location. Mitchell took advantage of both nearby Chicago and study abroad for internships to advance his career in business.

“The quick and easy access to Chicago and the surrounding suburbs makes finding internships and jobs much easier.”

In addition to taking advantage of off-campus opportunities, Mitchell utilized his time on campus to become involved with the Entrepreneurship and International Business Organization. He helped with a project to import Greek olive oil for domestic sale. He also aided a professor in research and formed relationships with other faculty.

“A student can walk into any professor’s office and get advice on internships, study abroad, coursework or future plans.”

But the versatility of the management major is what Mitchell truly appreciated.

“This exposure allows students to recognize problems before they happen, think critically and take all aspects of a business into account.” 

“Exposure to several divisions of business allows students to recognize problems before they happen, think critically and take all aspects of a business into account.”
