STUDENT ACTIVITIES

Students hone their business and leadership skills through out of class activities and clubs.

Events

The Department sponsors visits by alumni and local business professionals.  This is your chance to ask questions about careers, make connections and focus your goals.  We also offer technical skills workshops to enhance your classroom education including computer workshops, Bloomberg training seminars and workshops on presentation skills. 

The Dearden Honor Society

Built on the legacy and with the support of one of our most noted alumni, William Deaden, our Honor Society recognizes the accomplishments and provides enrichment activities for Business, Accounting and Economics students.  Consistent with the values of Bill Dearden, the former CEO of Hershey Foods, the society promotes the development of students, recognizes excellence and provides service to the Department and College.  This isn’t just an achievement to put on your resume (though we are sue you will).  The Society provides additional opportunities to our top performing students through field trips, visits with speakers and other events.   Learn more about eligibility requirements and the activities of the society at our Dearden Society Home Page.

Dearden Leadership Workshop

The Dearden Leadership Workshop builds on the legacy of Albright alumni William Dearden, former CEO of Hershey Foods.  Based on the best in business values, the Dearden Leadership Workshop is held once a year and invites academically strong students in the Department to learn more about their leadership style, effective communication and planning and conflict resolution.  Through interactive activities, students walk away with a firmer picture of their own skills and interests and the leadership and communication skills needed in today’s competitive workplace.  This intensive one day program lead by experienced business professionals and faculty includes hands-on activities designed to increase student understanding of fundamental concepts such as communicating your vision, teamwork, recognizing and making the most of diversity and more.

Enactus

Our student chapter of Enactus provides students with the opportunity to learn more about business and explore their own leadership and business skills.  This student run club joins the international Enactus community - Enactus is an international organization that connects student, academic and business leaders through entrepreneurial-based projects that empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress for themselves and their communities.  Enactus chapters connect more than 66,000 students from around the world and at 1,600 universities.

Albright Job Shadowing

Job Shadowing programs allow students to interact one-on-one or in small groups with alumni working at leading local employers.  Even more opportunities for Job Shadowing are available through the Career Planning and Placement Office’s Ask JIM (Jobs, internships and mentoring) network.   Students are strongly encouraged to register for Ask Jim, available on the Experiential Learning and Career Development Center page.  You will learn about alumni and local business community members who are willing to mentor students in the process of career planning, resume preparation, job shadowing and more.
