You'll change jobs every 2-3 years, but the career skills for success will stay the same.

Communication, collaboration, teamwork, analysis, problem-solving... these and other soft skills are the keys to your workplace success during your first job and every job you'll ever have.

These skills are so important and so valued by employers that SMC has added direct training in these skills to every bachelor's degree program. When you graduate from SMC, you'll be ready for any job, not just one kind of job.

At SMC, you'll combine soft skills development with incredible hands-on career experiences like consulting and entrepreneurship projects, plus internships. Put that together with a rigorous academic education in a major you love and become unstoppable. Learn more about SMC's Professional Development-focused education.

After graduation, you'll have the knowledge and skills to switch jobs AND careers to expand your future in any direction you want to go. No matter what the world throws at you, you'll be able to adapt, to pivot, to thrive.

SMC's bachelor's degrees include internships.

An internship is one of the most important hands-on career experiences for students. At SMC, internships are built into your degree, not something extra you do outside the classroom.
