Annual Events

Business Leadership Weekend
The Business Leadership Weekend, formerly known as "The Business Bridge," was initiated by a group of School of Business faculty in 2001 and designed to assist business students in making well-informed major and career choices, as well as to provide them with training in leadership, team building and negotiation skills, and business etiquette.

Finance Speaker Series
The Finance Speaker Series at Penn State Behrend brings alumni and other finance professionals to the college to speak to undergraduate and graduate business students and the general public on timely issues concerning financial management, markets and investments.

Spring Student Trip
The spring student trip is an excellent opportunity for students to visit with potential employers in big cities all over the country. Students will meet with corporate recruiters and sometimes with high-level executives at companies chosen because they appeal to a wide range of Behrend majors. A special dinner with alumni in the area is also a tradition of this trip, and, of course, students get to explore the city during free time

Women in Business
10th, 11th, and 12th grade girls from local Erie area High Schools will be invited to participate in several hands-on workshops that will be led by female faculty from the Black School of Business.
