The payoff of perseverance

It’s impossible to be succinct when talking about Emmanuel Machena, B.B.A.’17. He can be described as a networker extraordinaire and a goal-setting fiend. He’s also a forward thinker, entrepreneur, and yes, a proud Haworth College of Business alumnus. Machena's time as a Business Bronco was spent both deliberately and purposefully—networking, interning and challenging the status quo any chance he could. 

Internships help students launch careers

WMU’s Haworth College of Business has always placed a premium on experiential learning. Combining academic studies with real world, on-the-job experience, through partnerships with employers helps business students excel and often leads to post-graduation job placement.
