The Ascend Indiana University Bloomington Chapter has numerous programs for its official members to participate in ranging from professional development, case skills, mentorship, and information technology.
Exclusive Development Program
The Exclusive Development Program (EDP) has been designed to equip you on with the most essential professional skills so you may succeed in your future internship and career. We provide great services and activities such as resume critique and mock interviews. Moreover, we offer a wide range of connections not just in Ascend but with other business organizations in Kelley School of Business as well. If you want to be prepared for the business world please apply for EDP!
Case Workshop Program
Case Workshop (CW) has been designed to teach better business case analysis and solution skills. From this semester, we will target to get involved into real case competitions (held by various companies: The Big 4, Accenture, etc) at the end of the program. It won't teach you how to look a big picture of the case, rather it will teach you how to focus on specific portions of the bigger picture and view the problem in different points of view in order to reach the ideal solution. If you want to know more about the business case, or prepare for the case interview or the competition, apply for CW!
Mentor and Mentee Program
Mentor and Mentee Program (M&M) is an exclusive 1-on-1 business professional program from Ascend. Once selected into the M&M program, each mentee will be assigned to a specific mentor who generally is a senior or graduate student and have rich experience in career development and academic advancement. M&M program is aimed at assisting mentees to strengthen professional abilities in many respects, including, but not limited to, resume building, career fair tips, interview preparation, and internship suggestions. In addition to those benefits brought by mentors, mentees can also join in our social lunch/dinner to make friends with other mentees and mentors. You will learn more about professionalism and receive friendly help from the Mentor and Mentee Program!
IT Workshop Program
Interested in technology and designing software? IT Workshop Program (ITW) is an exclusive training program for official Ascend members. Once selected into the ITW program, each participant will have lectures on PhotoShop, InDesign, 3D Modeling, Video Editing, Tableau, and etc. The goal is to help participants develop digital designing skills, as well as data analysis and visualization skills.
