Enriching your business education
Outside of the classroom, your business education continues through your involvement with business student associations and professional business fraternities. You will develop new interests and friendships, expand your knowledge of business disciplines, broaden your networks of SCU students and alumni, and participate in professional and social events. Your work with student organizations also gives you the opportunity to expand your leadership capabilities.
