"For personal transformation to be effective, academic, moral and spiritual experience must be integrated with and enhanced by learning outside the classroom." - University President Kevin P. Quinn, S.J.
Student Networking Trips
The PBC Office organizes four Student Networking Trips throughout the academic year to Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.. The networking trips are coupled with PBC receptions to provide students with the opportunity to interact with alumni to further enhance their "soft skills" of professional development.
Student Mentoring Program
The PBC offers a Mentoring Program
for students enrolled in the Kania School of Management. The program is
open to interested Juniors who are matched with PBC Members for two
years. Mentors volunteer their time and expertise by sharing their
experiences from the business world as the student considers internship
and career opportunities. Contact the PBC Office for more information
on becoming a mentor. PBC/ Kania SOM Career Coaches
Internship and Career Placement Program
The PBC is currently working to develop a more robust Internship and Career Placement Program. PBC Members have been very helpful in facilitating internships and job placements for Scranton students within their companies. With the new focus on growing and improving communication with Members, the PBC will introduce new initiatives on encouraging interns or new hires.
President's Business Council Day
President's Business Council Days are on-campus events designed as an educational and interactive opportunity for students and faculty, and a networking opportunity for PBC Members.
The Executive-in-Residence Program invites PBC members to campus for a half- or full-day to share their personal and professional experiences with students in the Business Leadership Program and in the entire Kania School of Management. These interactions prove invaluable to students and have been rewarding as well for the PBC Member.
