The Western Carolina University College of Business isn’t just about academics. It’s also about students. The WCU Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA) was formed with this idea in mind.
Encompassing all of the graduate business programs, the association serves many purposes. This includes providing a networking tool for current students, alumni, and Western North Carolina businesses, a social outlet for students and faculty, as well as a support system. The association plays an integral role in planning activities that add value to an individual’s graduate education. In the past, the association has helped students get jobs, brought in speakers, played a part in fundraising for the business school, taken part in community service projects, and planned many fun events.
GBSA is already planning events for this coming year. For example, the association is working on an tours and executive meetings at Harrah’s Casino and the new Cancer Center at Mission Hospital, as well as maintaining traditions such as the 3rd Advising Day International Covered Dish).
If you would like to get involved or have any questions, please feel free to contact the association at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, check us out on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wcu.gbsa. We look forward to hearing from you!
