Beyond Business

The Asian Business Student Association and Undergraduate Business Council are proud to present Beyond Business!

Beyond Business is a workshop where students can learn from guest speakers who majored in business or have a traditional background in business, but went on to pursue nontraditional career paths. This event exposes business students to career opportunities beyond the beaten path of traditional business degrees.
