We enhance business insight and professionalism, promote interdisciplinary and community awareness, and guide students through their first year in college. The Zeigler College of Business Learning Community (ZCOB LC), in collaboration with the Zeigler Institute for Professional Development (ZIPD), welcomes incoming freshmen who have declared a business major. Freshmen LC members (mentees) receive guidance from upperclassmen mentors and the LC director with the goal of thriving academically, professionally, and socially. Mentees take at least one course together that fulfills a graduation requirement along with voluntary enrollment into ZIPD to enhance their professionalism. ZCOB LC programming offers tutoring, guest speakers, professional development, networking, community service, and field trips to places like New York City. Your success is our BUSINESS!
