Experiential Learning

One of the best ways to learn is by doing and there’s nowhere better to learn business than Columbus. Only minutes away from the vibrant capital city of Columbus and more broadly central Ohio, students have convenient access to a wealth of corporations, small business, public and nonprofit enterprise. Students are encouraged to explore their professional interests with industries that have an ongoing relationship with Capital in virtually any field — from accounting firms, professional sports teams and insurance to health care, public service, social enterprise and more. Almost all internships are both paid and provide course credit.

Program Philosophy

Capital’s SOML is committed to the belief that the best preparation for a career in business is obtained by combining extensive study in the liberal arts with a major emphasizing the development of quantitative, analytical and human relations skills. High-impact classroom experiences include working with live clients, participating in a case competition, or even performing as a Chief Financial Officer in a simulated company. All SOML students take a professional development course where the final exam is a mock interview. Faculty work with each student to make sure that they have the experiences and knowledge they need to be ready for the next step.
