  • WOMEN IN BUSINESS

    We are a social, professional, and community service-based organization in the College of Business Administration at the University of Pittsburgh. Our focus is the development of young women as aspiring business professionals. 

    Our Mission

    Women in Business facilitates the professional growth and development of women within the University of Pittsburgh. Our goal is to empower and cultivate young women into excellent business leaders by providing them with the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful in the global business arena. We are committed to shaping young women into successful business leaders by fostering an environment of continuous growth and excellence, and developing a network of business professionals at the University of Pittsburgh.

     

    Our organization is comprised of highly motivated young women interested in building on their professional skills, expanding their professional and social networks, and giving back to the community. Our members are primarily focused in the area of business, but we welcome students of all majors and hope to see a growth in non-business major attendance.
