Business Alumni Association
The Messiah Business Alumni Association hosts several networking breakfasts each year that feature expert speakers and current business topics. Business student are invited to participate, both to increase their business acumen and to network with potential employers.
International Business Institute
Students in the Department Business have many outstanding study-abroad opportunities from which to choose, but perhaps the most extraordinary is the International Business Institute. For ten weeks during the summer, IBI participants travel through 11 European nations as well as India and China, while taking global business classes, seeing cultural and historic sites, and visiting major international organizations.
The Business Department ‘s Investment Club was formed several years ago through the bequest of a generous donor, allowing the student-led Club to trade actual stocks and invest real money, the gains from which are used to benefit other student organizations.
During their time at Messiah, most Business students enjoy one or more work experiences in their field. Students work for a wide variety of organizations including Fortune 500 firms. The Department often provides internship leads, and many more opportunities are found through the College’s outstanding Internship Center.
The Department Business believes that mentoring relationships are an important factor in helping individuals succeed both in college and the business world. Many Messiah students participate in special mentoring programs that connect lower-level students with upper-level students and upper-level students with alumni.
The mission of the Marketing Club is to help individuals connect with peers, build professional relationships, deepen their marketing understanding, and practice their discipline in ways that honor God, benefit others and launch their marketing careers. Marketing majors and minors comprise the Club's membership; however, everyone is welcomed to attend the Club's exciting on-campus events and field trips.
The Collaboratory is a center at Messiah College for applied research and project-based learning, in partnership with client non-profit organizations, businesses, governments and communities in our region and around the world. Areas of engagement include science, engineering, health, information technology, business and education.
Delta Mu Delta
Delta Mu Delta is a business honor society that recognizes and encourages academic excellence of students at qualifying colleges and universities to create a DMD community that fosters the well-being of its individual members and the business community through life-time membership.
Impact Venture Challenge
In a recent survey of the millennial generation, 54% said they had the goal of starting a business. There are a number of current Messiah College students and recent alumni with an entrepreneurial spirit who want to make both a profit and a difference in the world.
Messiah College needed a catalyst to harness this "entrepreneurial wave" and thus launched the Impact Venture Challenge three years ago to:
- equip Messiah College students to develop and launch ventures with positive social impact
- allow students to network with mentors, faculty members, non-profit organizations, potential investors, and business leaders
- serve the local and global community
- intentionally foster a spirit of entrepreneurship among the Messiah College community
Messiah partners with Praxis to send 10 students over the summer to their program. Academy students build life-long relationships with a curated community of like-minded peers from around the world. Academy students also connect to the broader Praxis community, which includes Praxis Fellows - over 125 entrepreneurs who have been through a Praxis Accelerator - the Praxis Core Team, Venture Partners, and Praxis Mentors.
