Student Associations and Events

  • Associations

    Students in Capilano University’s School of Business are given the opportunity to get involved and become a part of the school’s very active student and alumni associations. Getting involved in a student association gives you an opportunity to connect with your peers and forge relationships, and to learn and meet industry leaders through organized networking and social events. Students who join associations are able to apply the skills learned in class, develop leadership skills through organizing student events and initiatives, or pursue aspects of business you haven’t had the chance to cover in your education yet. Getting involved with Capilano’s business student associations means you’re building your network right from the get go—and having fun while you’re at it.  

    Some events put on by Capilano business associations include Suit Up, which brings together faculty, alumni and students for the first networking event of the academic year. Creating Connections, takes place in the spring and it is an annual networking event attended by over 200 Capilano students and reps from KPMG, BC Hydro, ICBC and others.
