Event Description

The Business & Economics Department invites undergraduate students from all majors (including undecided) to join us for a special breakfast event to explore the importance of dreaming big and discovering our inner strengths as women in the business field.

Dream Big... Be Assertive

Last fall, we learned that leaders in all sectors of society often point to their ability to dream big as a key component of success in their careers. This semester, the Women in Business Breakfast offers the opportunity to take the next step in the dream big journey by developing assertive communication strategies that will get you noticed.
