It culminates in the annual dinner and keynote event, but Business Week is really a month-long opportunity for business students and other UW-Green Bay students to enhance their classroom learning by participating in a variety of events, all of which include community business leaders. Events such as Learning to Dine Like a Professional, Elevator Pitch Competition, Etiquette Lunch and Mock Interview Day, help students to develop the interpersonal and professional acumen expected of business professionals. The annual Job and Internship Fair provides key networking opportunities for both community business and organizations and UW-Green Bay students. UW-Green Bay Career Services and the Cofrin School of Business are the organizers of activities. Corporate sponsorship and support is key to the success of the annual event.
At the Business Week Dinner, March 28, 2017, a number of individuals and organizations were recognized. Among those receiving awards:
Weyenberg Prize for Excellence in Business: Wipfli LLP
Wipfli Scholarship Recipient ($5,000): Justin Krizenesky
