About the MBAA

MBA Association

The stated mission of the MBAA is to expand professional opportunities for members by maximizing visibility, contact and networking opportunities with key leaders in education, business and government.

In order to do this, we have organized our efforts across three functional areas:

  • Social Networking

  • Community Service and Fundraising

  • Professional Development and Networking

Our goals within each of these functions are the following:

Social Networking

The MBAA organizes and promotes events that encourage social networking for MBAA members and their families with other members, CSB Faculty and Staff, and peer graduate programs.

Events of this type serve as an excellent way to expand social networks and build greater awareness of the MBA programs. Social events are organized and conducted at least once per month if other MBAA events are not already scheduled.

  • Past events include - Junior / Senior MBA class and Professional / International MBA class mixers, Comedy Night, and our annual Christmas Party

Community Service

The MBAA’s participation in select Community Service activities provides an opportunity to give back to the local community while also building brand awareness of the MBAA and MBA programs.

Community service activities currently include participation in the Adopt-A-Highway program. These activities are organized and conducted at least once per quarter.

  • Past examples include - Adopt-a-Highway and Relay for Life participation

Fundraising

As the professional association for all MBA students, the MBA Association is not just a network for future business leaders; it also serves to create opportunity for future classes of MBA students. Though still in its formative stage, our scholarship fund will create opportunity through financial assistance to those that need it most.

For MBAA members, fundraising efforts to grow the scholarship fund also represent an opportunity to transfer business theory and concepts, learned in the classroom, to a real-world scenario with the added benefits of enhancing the value of our education and improving the availability of scholarship monies to future Cameron MBA students. Fundraising events are organized and conducted at least once per semester.

  • Past examples include - Golf Tournament, Volleyball Tournament and our annual Oyster Roast

Professional Development and Networking

Professional development events are organized to sharpen and enhance the skills that will improve the professional business acumen and marketability of our MBA students and alumni.

The MBAA organizes and promotes events that expand professional networking opportunities for members with community leaders in education, business, and government as well as Cameron Faculty and Staff, and peer graduate programs. Opportunities for professional development and networking are organized and conducted at least once per quarter.

  • Past examples include - Power Breakfast Series / Lunch, Resume workshops
