Student Organizations

Build a Network of Friends and Colleagues

When you engage with other business students outside of class, you gain new ways of tackling academic and business challenges, you extend your network, you build energy for everyone’s success, and you have a chance to share what you’re learning, which is one of the best ways to solidify that knowledge for yourself.

Low-Risk Skill Building

"Active participation in student organizations allows you to build leadership skills in a low-risk environment. You interact with other students and professors as well as with professionals outside of KSU, allowing you to build your network. You can send your resume to any number of potential employers, but your network is most likely going to help you kick-start your career!"
