Economics and Business Club
The Economics and Business Club exists to provide an environment whereby students interested in business and associated disciplines can engage in discovery and growth, both as individuals and as aspiring professionals. Information pertaining to the field of economics and business is obtained through involvement in this organization, along with participation in activities and events to improve the health of the community at large.
Our mission is to prepare members for the requirements of business endeavors, while cultivating humanism, professionalism, and ethical behavior through the employment of rich instruction, valuable resources, and structured mentorship. Club affiliates endeavor to involve members of the Moravian campus, Moravian alumni, and local community partners through sponsored events where members can obtain working knowledge of businesses and their processes. Through such experiences, we hope the members of the Economics and Business Club, as well as the Moravian Community, will grow and develop a greater sense of appreciation and responsibility both for themselves and for others.
