Student Organizations

Get involved with a student organization

Student organizations provide opportunities for you to gain and share knowledge, build and expand your professional network, and feel a sense of belonging through engaging with a diverse array of student organizations. Student organizations are open to everyone and are designed to engage all online, on-campus, part-time, or full-time students. 

Through an active role of leading a student organization, you will build skills in team leadership, strategic planning, project management, and design thinking.  Whether it’s planning a national conference, designing a case competition, networking with industry experts, or hosting community events, student organizations host programs on the hottest topics in business.
