Business Week brings a sense of unity and friendly competition to our college as students, faculty and staff celebrate together. This year, we commemorate Business Week as part of our college's year long Centennial Celebration.
Individuals and organizations representing both the Trulaske College of Business and the University of Missouri give donations and service hours to the community as part of our philanthropic mission. Each year, volunteers fundraise for a selected organization in the Columbia community. This year, Tiger Pantry was selected. Goods collected provide a way for the students to give back and to connect with the community.
We hope all students utilize the opportunities presented by Business Week and learn the importance of camaraderie and service. As a committee, we encourage all students and student organizations to participate in this year’s exciting new events to become closer with their fellow classmates.
