Business Week is an excellent forum for students to get connected with the real world and learn from top business and civic leaders. The three-day event includes speed networking, a job fair (Meet-the-Firms), the La Quinta Keynote Lecture, and lectures and workshops on current topics from top business leaders.
The week concludes with a beautiful awards dinner and reception to celebrate student and faculty achievements. It is also a platform for companies to network with other business leaders, renew old connections and create new ones. This event is a longstanding tradition in the Greehey School of Business. It began in 1975 to connect the classroom to the business world under the guidance of Brother Paul Goelz, S.M., a beloved member of the Society of Mary and the San Antonio business community. Brother Goelz’s vision was to bring real-world leaders to our classrooms to share, not just their expertise, but also their passion for business and community. While the Greehey School of Business continues to innovate and grow, it has always been committed to the program’s original mission of providing relevant and responsive education that focuses on developing business professionals who are skilled, ethical and globally aware, and who are prepared for careers of meaning and purpose.For more information on Business Week:
