Business Week

Business Week 2015


The College of Business invites you to participate in Business Week. Iowa State University’s College of Business created Business Week as an opportunity for students to interact with peers, faculty, and representatives from your company. Since 1995, Business Week has offered all College of Business students a multitude of professional events leading up to the career fair.The Business Week events provide a wealth of information, knowledge, and services to the business students at Iowa State, and create an opportunity for our sponsors to interact with prospective interns and employees. Business Week is an excellent opportunity for your company/organization to be involved with the college, network with a large business-oriented audience, and have thousands of students recognize and become familiar with your firm while seeking positions.


This year, Business Week will take place September 23-30, 2015. Events allow students the opportunity to prepare for the Career Fair scheduled on Wednesday, September 30. During this time, companies can maximize exposure to the College of Business and its students.  We thank you in advance for your time and support of Business Week!
