The purpose of Business Week is to celebrate and promote the college through professional development, corporate engagement, philanthropic efforts, and student appreciation in both a professional and social manner. Business Week is held each year just before the fall Business, Industry and Technology Career Fair at Hilton Coliseum, which will be Wednesday, September 25, from 12:00-5:00 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. All students on campus are encouraged to attend the career fair, whether or not they currently need an internship or job.
“Business Week is a great opportunity for students to network with fellow students, business professionals, faculty and staff,” said Raisbeck Endowed Dean David Spalding. “I encourage all students to take advantage of the chance to make connections and learn about careers from these wonderful businesses.”
