Business Week

Business Week brings a sense of unity and friendly competition to our college as students, faculty and staff celebrate together. 

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. 

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 events to become closer with their fellow classmates.
