Joining a student organization or honor society is a great way to develop a network with others in your major and make contacts in the business community. Active participation also develops valuable skills that are sought by employers. There are two types of student organizations: professional and honoraries. Professional organizations, which are open to anyone who is interested, promote competencies and achievements relevant to a specific discipline and related occupations.
Honor societies encourage and recognize superior scholastic achievement and leadership. Honoraries usually invite prospective members to join through a rush program or direct contact.
Student organizations are a great way for students pursuing a major in business to get involved and build personal and professional relationships. Membership in one of these organizations provides networking opportunities, social interaction, and guest speakers from the business community. And it looks great on your resume!
