For the past six years, UNL’s College of Business Administration (CBA) has hosted Employer Partners Day, an event aimed at career building for students and recruiting efforts for employers. At this year’s program on May 16, Nelnet received the 2017 Employer of the Year Award based on its collaboration and partnership with CBA.

In the 2015-16 school year, Nelnet hosted 38 business-related interns and was one of two companies to hire on the largest number of UNL College of Business graduates. Dr. Rachel Larson, director of CBA’s Business Career Center, noted the success of Nelnet’s Pathways internship program, a program in which underclassmen students rotate through several departments to gain exposure to different areas of business and figure out which one they might want to pursue. Nelnet actively supports CBA and its various programs while offering both current students and recent graduates a variety of career opportunities.
