MBA Student Study Presentations
Thursday Mar 24, 2022 12:30 PM - 01:30 PM
On March 24, 2022, the William Woods University Leadership Center will sponsor two exciting events! Both events will be held in the Randall B. Cutlip Auditorium inside the McNutt Campus Center.
This event will feature MBA graduate students who will present research findings from a 9-month analysis of a nonprofit business. Students will discuss their findings but more importantly they will discuss what they learned from their experience and how they see this work assisting them as they transition from the classroom to the workforce. This event will be worth 1-LEAD point and will run from 12:30 to 1:30pm. Students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend this event. The event offers attendees the opportunity to learn how they can participate in future consulting projects. It also offers business owners the opportunity to learn how they can partner with the WWU Leadership Center and our students to assist them in strengthening their business strategies.
