Two Business Honors students were selected for the Top 25 Under 25 competition. Jessica Senatus and Tyler Schulman submitted personal statements that were judged on scholarship, professional development, leadership and community/campus service. Both students highlighted their activities in the Business Honors Program.
The freshman and junior Business Honors Program cohorts recently participated in our annual Business Honors Program Leadership and Ethics retreat, which took place at our Muma College of Business on January 31, 2020. The retreat is something the students attend as a freshman and then again as juniors to allow them to bond with students from other cohorts as well as develop skills and knowledge about how to be ethical leaders in the business world today. Often "ethics" can be a difficult concept to define, and the Business Honors Program wants to make sure that when our students graduate, that they can understand and practice honest and ethical business practices to be the best leaders possible. We also use the retreat as an opportunity for the juniors to act as mentors towards the freshman cohort and allow them to complete team-building activities that strengthen the program as a whole. All in all, the retreat was a memorable bonding experience, and we can't wait to take the incoming 2020 on their first Leadership and Ethics retreat next year!
Cohort 2019 with their service projects helped Mort Elementary and The Spring of Tampa Bay and organized a Beach Clean-up Day in Pinellas County.
Dana Jacobs, Vice President of Institutional Equity and Middle Market Sales at Raymond James and alumni of Muma College of Business, shared her career path experience with Business Honors Program classes. Students learned the importance of seeing an interview as a conversation and tips on what skills corporate firms looks for when hiring.
