The UB School of Management’s full-time MBA program provides an inclusive environment that supports big thinking, creative freedom, and vast possibilities for achievement. But achievement is not limited to the classroom. As you begin your journey with the #UBMBA program we wanted to highlight our culture of participation and motivation to seize opportunities. In this two-part blog series, you’ll be introduced to #UBMBA student-run organizations that you can consider joining this year.
