Emboldening and Equipping Our Members To Make A Difference
Corporate Networking Events
Each year we celebrate the growth of our young professionals by hosting a celebratory event with one or more of our corporate partners. These events are designed to expose students to professional work environments, enlighten students of career possibilities, and provide an opportunity to showcase networking skills.
Career Fairs can be intimidating, but with proper preparation you are sure to impress. The Business Academy coordinates with several companies to host a large Career Fair for minority students. With an increase in D&I Initiatives, companies are eager to meet the bright students that are groomed through our program. We have a rich tradition of placing diverse candidates at some of the most selective companies in this country.

Alumni Impact Stories
“To begin my college career belonging to a group of motivated individuals who wanted to share their experiences and help others forge their path to success was extremely formative. Without a doubt, I would not be where I am today with out SBA. “
“I joined the Business Academy because I knew I should get involved in extracurricular activities. It was the best decision I made. They gave me the foundational knowledge I needed to succeed, and the resources provided helped me identify my ideal path.”
“Joining SBA was probably the more pivotal moments for me during my college career. I was pretty lost, but SBA gave me a community and a structured forum where I could learn from other students how to be successful at Smith and beyond.”
