The Graduate Business Programs Student Life team provides the services and resources for students during their time in the program. The GBP Student Life team also provides leadership opportunities for interested students and partners with student leaders to provide quarterly events open to the entire graduate business community.
The Student Life team advises and supports the student networks in programming, community services, mentoring, and other outreach activities. GBP student networks actively participate in new student orientation sessions, annual Inter-Network Council (INC) events, as well as other special events held throughout the year.
GBP Inter-Network Council (INC)
GBP Student Networks
GBP Student Networks accomplish this by offering graduate business students a variety of opportunities to network with classmates, alumni, and industry professionals through panels and presentations. Students create the networks with the support, guidance, and direction of the GBP Student Life team. Networks are open to all graduate business students and alumni.
Current active networks include:
All graduate business students are encouraged to join at least one network, or start one of their own, in order to maximize their experience at Santa Clara University. For more information, contact the Student Life team at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION PROGRAM
New Student Orientation consists of a mandatory Saturday session. Students beginning the program in fall 2012 attend the orientation session in September. Students entering in winter and spring 2013 attend the orientation session in March. Once students have submitted their enrollment deposits, they are contacted by e-mail with information and specific dates for these events.
New MBA/MSIS students participate in orientation sessions designed to prepare them for the graduate program. In addition to meeting faculty and fellow students, new MBA/MSIS candidates have the opportunity to learn about academic and co-curricular activities within the School of Business. New students are invited to network with current students and alumni who can share their experiences while in the program and after graduation.
Orientation acquaints and sensitizes students to the overall structure of the MBA/MSIS curricula and its rigors and demands. It also provides an overview of general administrative procedures for the MBA/MSIS program.
Specialized orientation sessions are held in the fall for the Executive and Accelerated MBA Programs.
ACADEMIC YEAR START EVENT
Each academic year begins with a special kick-off event. All MBA/MSIS students are welcomed back to campus with a reception and short program. The dean welcomes students and addresses important issues confronting the business school and the environment in which it operates. Student leaders share their vision for the upcoming academic year and how students can become involved. This event is typically held on the first night of the quarter, before classes meet.
