The University provides numerous opportunities for students to work in the private sector as part of their education. This working experience complements academic curricula and enhances its relevance. Benefits of students working with the private sector include opportunities to apply theory to practical problems, and the development of work skills, such as critical thinking, communication, business acumen, and team participation leading to increased understanding of career possibilities and potential career directions.

The involvement of students and postdoctoral scholars with the private sector should enhance their educational experience and not unduly influence or restrict their academic and research choices.
