The spring 2017 semester is off to a busy start at the College of Business with orientation and networking events, even a high-wire act, plus visits from prominent alumni, sharing their stories of finding success at FIU.
Let’s take a look back at some of our favorite images from January captured by photographer Kayla Hauge:
Kaufman Rossin Room
FIU School of Accounting students have been great sources of talent for Kaufman Rossin, one of Florida’s largest independent accounting firms. In appreciation for the firm’s $100,000 gift, Room 221 in MANGO was named for Kaufman Rossin.
Mentors and Networking
Students and their mentors shared a networking exercise in partnership with Career Management Services to prepare for their college-to-career transition. Face-to-face contact is key because it enhances relationship-building and showcases confidence and professionalism.
Michael Kappitt talks marketing
College of Business alumnus Michael Kappitt (BAAC ’92), president of Carrabba’s Italian Grill, discussed creative marketing, consumer intelligence and branding success with AMA@FIU students. A fast-changing media landscape and social media make the marketing battle tougher.
Healthcare MBA Ropes Course
Filled with teambuilding exercises—culminating in a high-wire balancing act—the Healthcare MBA’s Ropes Course gives students the opportunity to work in teams and develop a strong affiliation with all their classmates.
Incoming College of Business students meet fellow students, administrators, faculty members and program staff while getting acquainted with the facilities at the MMC where many will be spending much of their time over the coming months.
Semester Career Fair
Held every semester, the FIU Career Services Fair aims to help students and alumni prepare to enter the working world and to give employers access to candidates with a broad range of degrees and experience levels.
