Dean’s Student Advisory Board
DSAB is a student organization that impacts the School of Business by participating in executing events, representing the student body, and enhancing the experience of business students. The board is exclusive in membership, requiring a recommendation from faculty to apply. These students are able to connect to motivated peers, develop vital leadership skills, and learn how to operate effectively in a team environment.
Berg-CFA Financial Competition
The Berg-CFA Investment Challenge Team is a group of students who have a strong interest in and knowledge of finance and accounting. The team competes against elite peers from other schools, often from MBA programs. Through a thorough and rigorous research paper and presentation, the team aims to establish a recommendation of buy, sell, or hold on a real company's stock. Finally, the students are questioned and evaluated by a panel of CFA endorsed analysts. The CFA team represents a culmination of the knowledge students gain from both the business school and the liberal arts programs that surround it.
Berg Business Board
The Berg Business Board is a group of business professionals that help students network with possible mentors and employers; these same members also take an active role in events, participating in the Research Symposium, the Internship and Placement Fair, and countless other activities.
Through our research symposium, students have the opportunity to present their own original research, conducted with the help of a faculty mentor. The mentor helps each student complete a research project of high academic quality that is comparable to the standards set by academic journals within their field of study. The process takes place over the course of a semester and culminates in a presentation made to students, faculty, and Berg Business Board members.
Seven Steps to Success
This event series helps students develop professional skills. Students attend sessions that address creating a cover letter and resume, techniques of networking, and even simulations of interviews with human resource professionals. The sessions prepare students for the finale of the series, the Internship and Placement Fair.
