Regional Opportunities to Interact

roi_logo_notext.pngThe College of Business partners with the FSU Alumni Association and University Relations to host the networking series, ROI – Regional Opportunities to Interact. The purpose of this series is to support our alumni communities and share news on the college and the association while providing a “return on investment” to alumni as they advance in their careers. Each networking and learning event includes an opportunity for a speaker to provide a best practice or “take-away” that attendees can apply to their professional career.
