New Student Orientation in School of Business

SIUE Baseball Alumni to Reunite in April

Mid-January marked the welcoming of the new School of Business students through the newly implemented course "GBA 301 Business Transitions: Planning for Success." The course is designed to assist students with the transition into the School of Business, as well as develop knowledge and skills related to their career. This semester’s course began with an orientation and an etiquette lesson, which provided students with the basic knowledge they need to be successful business students. The etiquette lesson provided the students with information such as keys to a good handshake, how to dress professionally and what to do in a networking environment.
