The Goodman School of Business is home to three academic programs: Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Business Administration, and Bachelor of Business Administration Co-op International Double Degree. While Goodman has a lot to offer in the classroom, there’s a whole other side to Goodman that involves learning outside of the classroom as well.
With eight clubs and countless competitions throughout the year, Goodman students have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to getting involved. Whether you’re seeking an executive position, a spot on a competition team, or just looking to make some friends, there is most certainly something for you. Read on for a glimpse at some of the Goodman clubs.
Goodman Business Students’ Association (BSA)
The BSA governs all seven of the student clubs. They offer services like professional headshots and business cards and run several charity events throughout the year.
Goodman Accounting Students’ Association (ASA)
The ASA frequently runs networking sessions with local accounting professionals and skill building workshops throughout the year. Their activities are tailored to students pursuing the CPA designation, but all Goodman students are welcome to join. They are also home to the Brock University Accounting Conference (BUAC) which runs every fall and will be releasing delegate applications very soon.
Brock Finance and Investment Group (BFIG) at Goodman
BFIG allows students the opportunity to supplement their classroom learning with real world finance/investment experience. They host workshops for beginners, as well as their Analyst Program for individuals who already have some experience and are looking to further develop their skills.
Brock Innovation Group (BIG) at Goodman
BIG is Brock’s very own hub for innovation. Here, students are invited to exercise creativity and develop new ideas for potential business ventures. BIG runs workshops throughout the year to help students build confidence in their ideas and equip them with the tools they need to bring them to life.
Brock Marketing Association (BMA) at Goodman
The BMA hosts competitions, workshops and showcases for students interested in pursuing a career in marketing. They are best known for their annual So You Think You Can Sell sales competition, as well as unique skill-building workshops that they run throughout the year.
Goodman Data Analytics Students’ Association (DASA)
DASA is one of the newest clubs at Goodman and has grown quite a bit in the two years since its inception. DASA’s interactive workshops help students better their understanding of data analytics and apply this knowledge to business decisions. They host a variety of competitions and conferences throughout the year for students at all proficiency levels.
Goodman DECA takes business education to the next level. DECA delegates are invited to walk in the shoes of industry professionals and tackle real-world business challenges. DECA will be recruiting delegates for the upcoming academic year in the fall, so be sure to keep an eye out if you are interested.
Goodman Women in Business (WIB)
Goodman WIB was created to educate the business community about the experience of women in the workplace. Through guest speakers, workshops and their new podcast, WIB seeks to empower women in their pursuit of success, whatever that may look like. Their annual flagship event, The Rise, runs every winter and everyone is encouraged to attend.
As you can see, Goodman students have many opportunities for learning and development even outside of the lecture halls. Keep an eye out for more information regarding executive positions and competition recruitment at the clubs fair this September.
