The fourth annual Business Week, co-presented by the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business and Career Services is in the books and has left students, faculty, staff, and community business leaders feeling accomplished and inspired.

Business Week 2014 gave students the chance to shine and connect with business leaders. Events like “The Job & Internship Fair”, “Mock Interview Day”, and the “Elevator Pitch Competition” allow students to positively stand out to prospecting employers and business professionals. The networking possibilities and connecting opportunities help students explore the possibilities out there and grow as young professionals. Students had the opportunity to attend the “Dine Like a Professional Luncheon” and learn professional etiquette in a business setting. Business Week 2014 helped develop student’s interpersonal and professional skills that are expected from them when they enter the business world.

“The centerpiece of Business Week is the “Keynote Networking Dinner.” The dinner, held on the stage of the world-renowned Weidner Center, engaged business leaders and top students in an evening of conversation and learning. This year, we were fortunate to have Jim Sinegal, co-founder of Costco Wholesale Corporation as our keynote speaker. Jim is currently serving as a Director and Company Advisor since his retirement in January, 2012. He served as the Chief Executive Officer of Costco Wholesale Corporation for 27 years. He was named one of Business Week’s “Best Managers” in 2013 and he was also named to Time Magazine’s 2006 list of the 100 most influential people.”

 A very special thanks to our Business Week 2014 sponsors
