Business & Accounting League
Founded in 2000, the Business and Accounting League seeks to build a bridge between the academic and career worlds. The League focuses on programs to complement and add to classroom experiences. League officers determine the year's programs, so there is a real emphasis on offering events that help participants understand what they need to successfully launch their careers.
The League sponsors a variety of activities throughout the academic year. Past programs have included forums on investment advice, buying real estate, resume preparation and effective interview skills, career wardrobe, and dining etiquette. Many alums have lent their expertise and served as presenters at the forums. There is usually a pizza dinner in the fall to kick off the school year and a Christmas holiday lunch with faculty. The group takes at least one road trip to a local employer each semester to get the insider's perspective on various aspects of the organization. Steelcase, AutoCam, and the Amway Grand Plaza have been popular destinations.
