College of Business students talk at Student Etiquette Dinner

Student Etiquette Dinner

Professional development is critical for students’ future success. Training in areas such as etiquette and professionalism are no longer just considered an advantage, but a requirement for today’s competitive job market. The College of Business and Analytics Etiquette Dinner provides students an opportunity to learn and practice these skills while networking with College of Business and Analytics alumni.

Since the program began, more than 600 students have received expert instruction on networking and business etiquette. The feedback from those students has been uniformly positive, with many talking about how much more comfortable and confident they will be in professional and interview situations. The etiquette dinner has been incorporated into the career preparedness training in the undergraduate program. By providing more opportunities to develop students’ professionalism and polish, we can help students build confidence and presence as they compete for internships and jobs.

This event would not have been possible without the help of our alumni and friends. Thank you for your support!
