Are you a rising Junior interested in a unique experience that helps you stand out from the crowd and prepares you to be a business leader of tomorrow?

The SBLP is a strategic partnership with Southwire Company LLC that encourages, motivates, and mentors students to contribute toward meaningful business and community initiatives.

Students apply and are selected by a panel of UWG and Southwire employees to participate in a semester-long program learning about Southwire culture and receiving training that focuses on leadership and professionalism skills. The following semester, students begin a two-semester internship that focuses on an individualized project and concludes fall of their senior year.
