Why participate in The Associate?

This is a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in which you will grow and learn tremendously both personally and professionally--gaining hands-on experiences very few of your peers will get. You will get to network with and get to know business leaders and representatives from across the Baltimore region. Your presentation skills and confidence will skyrocket as a result of getting direct feedback from executives. And you’ll become a part of the network of more than 80 CBE alumni who have experienced this life-changing opportunity--many of whom say it was the best experience they had at TU.

Participating in The Associate gave me the confidence to be different, to take risks and to push myself to be the best person I can be. ”
