The Wright Venture Competition is the “Shark Tank” equivalent at Raj Soin.

The Organizational Effectiveness Lecture Series is another forum for students to learn from experts in the field.

The Lift Symposium offers presentations from big names in the financial industry, discussions, and networking.
Students interested in developing leadership skills can serve as a mentor to an incoming freshman through the Peer Mentoring Program. With so many events to attend, how do students keep track of everything? The Passport to Success App allows students to select which events they are interested in attending, it sends an event reminder, and it gives rewards points for attendance at workshops and special events that can be traded for prizes. Study abroad trips to destinations such as Belgium, China, France, Israel, and Tanzania allows students to experience business in other cultures.
The Master of Business Administration can be earned fully online or in a hybrid format. Students in this highly ranked program receive the same quality education as their peers enrolled in the on-campus program.
