Student Clubs and Organizations
The UConn MBA experience expands well beyond the classroom with clubs, case competitions, and startup challenges. Consistent with "real world, real learning, real impact," many student organizations at UConn focus on opportunities to apply classroom learning to volunteer projects in the community. But students also arrange professional development and networking events, as well as opportunities to relax and socialize. Our co-location with all of UConn's Graduate Business Programs and central location to local businesses and other UConn graduate schools also allow you to build relationships beyond your classmates.
Case Competitions and Startup Challenges
In addition to opportunities developed by students as part of student organizations, UConn also sends student teams to national case competitions, such as the Illinois Strategy Case Competition, and the APICS Supply Chain Challenge. If you are interested in learning more about our student case competitions, please visit out Case Competitions web page.
MBA students are also involved in the UConn startup community through programs offered by the Werth Institute and Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
