At the Business School
Student organizations provide networking opportunities with fellow students, faculty, and the local business community. They provide access to information about specific programs, offer way more ways to get involved with the Business School community, and are a fun and relaxed way to meet new people.
The Business School supports clubs associated with almost every degree area within the school and generalized business-focused organizations. If you are a prospective or current student, feel free to connect with clubs through their email address or MyLynx.
If you are in a Business School student organization and would like to know how to market your club, please see our Communication Resources Page.
