ECF Access

The College of Business has partnered with the Economic Club of Florida (ECF) to provide our graduate students the opportunity to connect with the club to further their networking opportunities. Established in 1977, the Economic Club of Florida is recognized as an important forum for distinguished speakers on issues facing us today. Membership includes nearly 400 of the “Who’s Who” of the Capital City and includes both well-established and up-and-coming professionals. Each month a small group of MBA students are selected to attend luncheon meeting and activities of the club, where they interact with leaders in Tallahassee and hear professionals present on a variety of issues affecting today’s business environment.


Peer Connect

This dynamic program, led by the Student Leadership Council, links incoming business students with juniors and seniors who are knowledgeable about the College of Business.  Participants meet weekly throughout the semester for approximately an hour.  Each meeting includes a short presentation focused on various topics to familiarize incoming students with available business programs (ex: internships, college involvement, study abroad, etc.), discussions of best practices for success in the college, and time for individual mentor/mentee connection.  Throughout the semester participants are also introduced to different venues around campus and the surrounding community (ex: Innovation Hub, FSU Rez, Planetarium, etc.).  

Mentors represent all business majors and are selected based on their qualifications, including involvement in the College of Business.  They offer valuable guidance to help incoming students navigate through the College of Business and make the most out of their college career.
