We are excited to announce "Business Week 2013," co-presented by the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business and Career Services at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. This year's theme, "Creativity, Innovation, and Vision" helps us to highlight the value of sustained innovation in our business community.
In its third year, Business Week has proven valuable to both business leaders and students in the Austin E. Cofrin School of Business. Students are able to add their classroom learning by participating in a variety of events, all of which include community business leaders. Events such as the "Learning to Dine Like a Professional" Etiquette Lunch and "Mock Interview Day" help students to develop the interpersonal and professional acumen expected of business professionals. The "Job and Internship Fair" gives students the opportunity to stand out from the crowd and become more than just a name on a resume. A new event for this year will be an "Elevator Pitch Competition & Networking Night," for which students will create a 60-second video pitching themselves and their career strengths, abilities, and goals.
The centerpiece of Business Week is the "Keynote Networking Dinner." The dinner, held on the stage of the world-renowned Weidner Center, engages business leaders and top students in an evening of conversation and learning. This year, we are fortunate to have as our keynote speaker Betsy Mitchell, recipient of the 2011 Athena Award and recently retired from her position as Vice President of Organizational Development with the Green Bay Packers.
Students - sign up for as many Business Week events as you can!
