MSU business students launch new organization
Minot State University students will soon have the option of choosing an all-encompassing organization. Beavers on Business, which is a new student group, will serve as an umbrella association for all College of Business clubs and organizations. BOB will officially kick off April 14 in the Conference Center, 5 p.m.
"Beavers on Business will provide many new opportunities, including a partnership with the Minot Young Professionals group," said Andrew Evanoff, Minot State student and BOB originator. "This will bring networking, educational and career opportunities to students."
BOB will coordinate the efforts of the four current student organizations: Accounting Club, Phi Beta Lambda (a collegiate level of Future Business Leaders of America), Delta Epsilon Chi (collegiate level of DECA) and Students in Free Enterprise.
"Beavers on Business is a grassroots effort; the idea and the implementation have been the students’ doing," said JoAnn Linrud, dean of the College of Business. "This reorganization will provide better coordination among the College of Business student organizations. I congratulate them for being proactive!"
The launch party for BOB includes a presentation by Terry Fleck, owner of the Institute of Attitude. Following Fleck’s remarks, Evanoff, will provide an overview of Beavers on Business. The evening will also include comments from Linrud, and the Young Professionals group in Minot.
BOB will also serve as an advisory group to Linrud and the College of Business.
The event is free and open to the community.
