More Than 20 Ways to Get Involved as a Business Student

The University of Dayton's School of Business Administration has a variety of student-run clubs and organizations that provide students with opportunities to apply concepts learned in the classroom into real-world, hands-on activities.  By getting involved in these extra-curricular activities, students gain leadership experience, enhance their professional skills, and have opportunities to meet business professionals both in formal and informal settings.  Our organizations also serve to enhance students' understanding of Marianist values and ethics as they relate to their business and professional lives and many of our extracurricular organizations regularly include service activities as part of club membership.
