Business Week

 

Business Week 2015 is celebrated September 23-30, 2015

BusinessWeekWebWe’re excited to announce an exciting line-up of activities for Business Week 2015!

 

Since 1995, Iowa State University’s College of Business has organized Business Week as an opportunity for students to interact with peers, faculty, and representatives from businesses. Students enjoy a variety of professional events that all lead up to the Business/Industry/Technology 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.

 

We hope you can join us for as many events as possible!
