Since the mid-1970s, the College of Business at Illinois State University has sponsored Business Week to foster students' appreciation for the array of skills required in a dynamic global business environment.
Through a week-long series of events, corporate and industry leaders interact with students, share specialized expertise and explore important issues and cutting-edge developments. Business Week allows speakers to address broader topics such as educational preparation, leadership, service, etiquette, networking, goal setting, and career advancement. Business Week is managed by a student led committee with guidance from professional staff in the College of Business.
Through corporate and individual financial support, Business Week can become a self-sufficient activity. Partnership dollars raised for Business Week may also be used for expenses related to other guest speaking opportunities and/or student professional development initiatives. Donors are recognized in the Business Week brochure and on the web as well as signage during the week and on the message boards in the College of Business. Platinum Partners may be listed as a featured partner of a specific day and Lead Partners may be listed as a featured partner for a specific activity.
