As a current student, it is essential to get involved with one of the clubs offered through the School of Business and Economics. We have seven student-run clubs that are each focused on one of our business or economics concentrations.

Three reasons why you should join a club:

1.  Meet students with similar interests and career goals to your own.
2.  Build your professional network with the local community. 
3.  Learn about different career paths and opportunities available within your field of interest.
