With the help of my professors and the career center, I was able to network with a local employer, JBT Foodtech, a world-renowned market leader in the citrus industry. After interning there, I was hired as their marketing coordinator for Liquid Food Solutions.

We’re lucky to have companies that come and visit us in our classes. They come and tell us about their internship and career opportunities. Associates from an Orlando-based, non-profit accounting firm (Batts Morrison Wales & Lee) just visited FSC and it was really interesting.

The Business Administration major within School of Business provides myself and my peers with hands-on learning in order to make us critically think about how our lessons would play out in the real world. Classes such as BUS 1115 are focused on putting the student’s entrepreneurial ideas into action in order to apply what we already know

Allison Johnson

I love the engaged learning aspects and love how the professors know who I am. In Psychology I was able to see a human brain and sheep brain my first semester here. In Business Administration, my professor loves to ask us what’s going on in the news and helps us understand the market and stocks a bit more.

Angel Godwin

I love having the opportunity to get super involved and take a hands-on approach in my education.
