The Dean's Leadership Society

The Dean’s Leadership Society is made up of alumni and friends who give to the Dean’s Fund for Excellence. The dollars raised provide experiences and opportunities that include professional credentials, international experiences and professional competitions.

  • Professional credential programs that give students a competitive edge when applying for jobs
  • International experiences and internships that immerse students in global commerce and build cultural intelligence
  • Competitions, site visits and other career-specific learning opportunities that use and elevate the knowledge and skills gained in the classroom

These activities support that transition from student to business professional and allow our graduates to claim a professional distinction. During the most recent academic year, our this leadership society directly supported nearly 300 UNI Business students as well as faculty, programs, and relationships that secure those opportunities.
