On a warm Tuesday night in early September (9/8/20), over 130 students registered for a virtual version of the annual Business Program Info Session, with a bonus business club fair! Professor David Chu and Professor Kendy Hess, co-directors of the Ciocca Center for Business, Ethics, and Society at the College of the Holy Cross, shared an overview of the opportunities for students to connect their liberal arts education to the business world.
“Three out of four Holy Cross alumni, that’s 75%, currently work in business roles.” shares Prof. David Chu.
Watch this five-minute video to recap the multiple pathways to business, including the Business Certificate Programs and the minor in Business, Ethics, and Society.
Following the information session, students were provided a slide deck with details on the various student business clubs, complete with Zoom links to the concurrent meetings each club was holding during the fair. With the option to pop in and out of the meetings, students were free to move about and meet fellow students while discovering potential career communities.
Thanks for joining us!
Connecting via Zoom during COVID-19 has become the new normal for Holy Cross students and this year the the annual Mock Super Day was a virtual event held on April 29th by the Finance Club through the Ciocca Center for Business, Ethics, and Society at the College of the Holy Cross. Club chairs Allie Silge ’20 and Piotr Pogorzelski ’20, worked with Pam Ahearn, director of employer engagement in the Center for Career Development, to organize seven alumni and 11 students to participate in the event. Ahearn hosted the event and mapped out the evening to have each student interview with each alumni via breakout rooms.
