CenturyLink Saturday Academies

Taught by the same College of Business professors as ULM’s highly successful Business 1001 course (Dr. Arturo Rodriguez; Tom DiNardin), each 3-hour Saturday Academy will focus on a different career area in business as well as highlight the school to work pathway. Using engaging strategies and real-world examples provided by CenturyLinK employees, the program will introduce middle school students to four career tracks over the year (e.g., Accounting, Finance, Management, Technology) and highlight what it takes to get, and keep, the job.

The general public and private middle schools are able to participate, no restriction on region. School sites are encouraged to send teams of students; those students without teams will be partnered up when they arrive.

CenturyLink Saturday Academies take place on the ULM campus at the College of Business located at Hemphill Hall room 134 (campus map) from 9:00a.m. to noon on the following dates:
