Business and Economics
Distinctions & Opportunities
The faculty of the School of Business and Economics recognizes that student organizations may contribute greatly to the total development of all students. A number of student organizations exist at IU Northwest, and it is recommended that each student take advantage of extracurricular activities and opportunities provided by those organizations. Some organizations are purpose oriented and attempt to develop and improve a student's understanding of the business environment. Other organizations are honorary.
