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

Association of Marketing Professionals

Association of Marketing Professionals (AMP) is affiliated with the American Marketing Association and serves as a networking opportunity for students who have an interest in pursuing a sales or marketing career. Members of the Liberty University AMP have participated at the national level of the AMA Collegiate Case Competition for three consecutive years (2009-2011), placing in the final four chapters in 2010 and 2011. The 2012-2013 team was a national semi-finalist. Each year, the chapter invites successful alumni to participate on a panel to share their work experiences and share with students the attributes the managers seek in job applicants. In addition, we sponsor guest speakers and enjoy social events like picnics and dinners. We also participate in sales/marketing-related activities on behalf of non-profits and to raise funds for the chapter. These opportunities prepare our students for a successful career.
