The BBA Council is the governing body for all BBA students. Your Council is elected each year to represent the needs of the students and to serve as your voice in enabling and enhancing professional, social, and academic opportunities.
The Council allocates funding and provides oversight for all the BBA Clubs and plans events ranging from weekly “Kegs in the Courtyard” to monthly social activities and the annual Undergraduate Business School Leadership Conference, BBA Formal, and Senior Class Celebration.
Students are highly encouraged to get involved in the Council by running for office, spearheading an initiative with the Council’s assistance, or taking a leadership role in a BBA club.
