Learn how to participate in these programs outlined below.
Business Leadership Programs (BLP)
Leadership is the art and science of getting others to do what they would otherwise not do. The BLP helps students gain the skills, knowledge and personal characteristics necessary for leadership. Over the course of three years (beginning with the sophomore year), BLP students will move forward in the program participating in in various leadership education experiences focused on a theme that teaches skills for listening, understanding, and persuading. For additional information on the BLP program go HERE.
FCB Student Mentors
The FCB student mentors are sophomores, juniors, and seniors majoring in Business who act as student advisors and ambassadors between The W. A. Franke College of Business and current and prospective students and their parents. They are an enthusiastic group who want to help make your FCB experience a great one.

Pathways to Professional Leadership
The Pathways to Professional Leadership Program is a series of seminars, workshops, and lectures that complements the Business degree coursework. Events are designed to help students with academic success, career exploration and job search, and professional and personal development. Skills learned in these activities give students a competitive edge when entering the workforce. For additional information on Pathways go HERE.
Professionalism Recognition Program (PRP)
The Professionalism Recognition Program (PRP) is a unique opportunity for Business and Hotel & Restaurant Management (HRM) majors to distinguish themselves by developing and demonstrating professional qualities in the classroom and through extracurricular activities. Students are evaluated on their activities and behavior both inside and outside the classroom. Evaluations gathered throughout the students’ undergraduate career are translated into a final professionalism ranking outlined in a reference letter from the FCB Dean. For additional information on the PRP program go HERE.
Student Clubs and Organizations
In the FCB business division, there are several clubs to choose from to broaden your academic experience; network with peers and mentors; and round out the learning that takes place in the classroom. Take a look, attend a few meetings, see which ones are the perfect match for you! For additional information go HERE.
