Business Week

 BusinessWeekWebCollege of Business Celebrates Business Week: September 12-16, 2016



Since 1995, Iowa State University’s College of Business has organized Business Week. The purpose of this dedicated week is to provide students with professional development opportunities, such as a Business Week Speaker Series, and to provide opportunities for business students to network with potential employers. 


Business Week is held each year just before the fall Business, Industry and Technology Career Fair at Hilton Coliseum, which will be Wednesday, September 21, 2016 from 12:00-6:00 p.m. at Hilton Coliseum. All students on campus are encouraged to attend the career fair, whether or not they currently need an internship or job.


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.
