Business Student Organizations & Honor Societies

Student Organizations

The Liberty University School of Business offers a variety of student-led organizations, both co-curricular and extra-curricular. These student groups are not only a way for students to form relationships with their peers and put their classroom knowledge to use, but also for them to have the opportunity to learn from professionals in their career field and network.

These professionally minded clubs feature activities and events including guest speakers, industry days and career treks. Many of these organizations are also chapters of global organizations allowing students to transition from college-based organizations to full-on professional status.

Student Organizations active at the Liberty University School of Business:

  • Accounting Society

    The Accounting Society was formed to equip accounting students with the tools they need to become beacons of Christ in the business environment. Social events are offered to allow students the opportunity to network with other accounting students, professors, and business professionals from the community. The Accounting Society also regularly hosts meetings in which business professionals present information on accounting-related topics, including technical updates, interview skills, and expectations for life after graduation. Professional relationships are maintained with various employers, including national, regional, and local accounting firms and private companies so that Society members can remain informed of valuable internship and career opportunities.
