Lessons from Alumni Home

Lessons from Alumni is a COBE produced series of events that takes place each fall. It provides a platform for business students and members of the local business community to build a foundation for future business relationships. Acting as sponsors for this event, local companies are invited to attend various events including networking breakfasts, luncheons, interview and hiring sessions and classroom panel sessions. During the week, business will have the opportunity to fill open positions by recruiting directly out of The College of Business and Economics. This annual event has proven successful in the past with several students having obtained internships, part time and full time positions in companies across several facets of business.

Over 50 professional professionals, almost all alumni, participated in Lessons From Alumni this year. More then 100 students attended the kick-off breakfast. Read below to get a glimpse of the 2013 event. Also see the participants under kick-off breakfast speakers and classroom panel sessions.
