Preview: #PierceBusinessMonth

It’s #PierceBusinessMonth, and the college will hold four events aimed to inform students on the Business and Economic majors, and how it can be applied to future careers.

The event is being hosted by both the Business and Economic departments and the counseling office. There will be a new event every week, each showcasing the various fields of the major.

To kick off the event, Department Chair Martin Karamian, will host an event Thursday, Oct. 10, that will highlight the business major and the career options that come with it.

“If you’re looking for a degree that’s going to help you get jobs, that’s going to lead to a good income, that’s going to be flexible in any industry, this is it.” Karamian said.

With business being one of the most popular majors on campus, this event is designed to help students get a better understanding on the major. The event will highlight marketing, management, accounting and more.

More interested in the economics side of business? There will be an event held Wednesday Oct. 16th, hosted by Department Chair Kaycea Campbell.

“Economics is a powerful social science, and I want the students to know that,” Campbell said.

Campbell explains how the study of economics delves into business, finance and how resources are allocated. Economics goes beyond money, and can provide information about production, consumption and distribution. 

Students are encouraged to attend the event to see if this major is a good fit for them. With this being one of the most popular majors at top American universities, Campbell will inform students on the various degree paths and career opportunities available to them.

The next event scheduled is the Business College Fair. The fair is set to take place on Wednesday, Oct. 23. It will include schools such as CSUN, UCLA, Pepperdine, Cal Lutheran, Woodbury, Azusa Pacific and others. 

Students will be able to meet with each specific college to see what degrees are available at their respective campuses. They can also get answers to any questions they may have. It will provide students with a chance to explore their options and find a university that meets their needs.

The final event that will be held will be the Professionals’ Panel and Q&A. This event will showcase people in the industry who work behind the scenes. These professionals are insiders from Disney, Universal Studios Hollywood, LinkedIn and Wells Fargo, to list a few. They will answer questions, as well as provide advice based on their real world experience.

If students are considering majoring in business or economics, this is an event suited to their needs. All the events will be held in the Great Hall, and students will be provided a free slice of pizza.
