Programs & Events in the Black School of Business

The Black School of Business offers many programs and events. Annual Events

Business Bridge
The Business Bridge, initiated by a group of School of Business faculty in 2001, is designed to assist second-year business students in making well-informed major and career choices, as well as to provide them with training in leadership, team building and negotiation skills, and business etiquette.

Finance Speaker Series
The Finance Speaker Series at Penn State Behrend brings alumni and other finance professionals to the college to speak to undergraduate and graduate business students and the general public on timely issues concerning financial management, markets and investments.

Master of Project Management Program Community of Practice Conference
This conference is designed to allow students in the MPM program at Penn State Behrend to meet program faculty, build relationships with other students, gain insight into new perspectives on project management from guest speakers, and learn about important program expectations, requirements, and learning technologies used in the program.

Spring Student Trip

The spring student trip is an excellent opportunity for students to visit with potential employers in big cities all over the country. Students will meet with corporate recruiters and sometimes with high-level executives at companies chosen because they appeal to a wide range of Behrend majors. A special dinner with alumni in the area is also a tradition of this trip, and, of course, students get to explore the city during free time

Women in Business
10th, 11th and 12th grade girls from local Erie area High Schools will be invited to participate in several hands-on workshops that will be led by female faculty from the Black School of Business.
