The Business & Economics Department invites undergraduate students from all majors (including undecided) to join us for a special breakfast event exploring the importance of dreaming big and discovering callings as women in the business field.
Dream big... Take risks
When asked how they achieved their success, leaders in all sectors of society often point to their ability to dream big as a first step in planning their careers. Our featured speaker, Jamie Candee, CEO of Questar Assessment is no exception. She believes the practice of dreaming big is a precursor to the act of achieving big and will challenge us to purposefully dream to achieve God's glory.
