Our Business Team coordinates and produces all the necessary materials to advance the club image and projects. Working with students, sponsors, and community members, the team equips the club with the right tools to grow. The Business Team works alongside the Engineering Team to promote, market, and find support for our projects.
Business team responsibilities are structured in three interdependent groups with corresponding Leads: Events and Logistics, Media and Marketing, and Partnership and Finance.
While the Business Team has established funding objectives, brand guidelines, and logistical frameworks that maintain the entire club, there are several avenues for creative exploration and innovation.
Members frequently apply strategies and software learned in their classrooms to the Business Team. Business students incorporate models that streamline communications; event planners introduce new ways to expand our alumni network; and creatives are encouraged to design unique branded materials for the club.

By emulating a startup environment, the club offers valuable insights into the complexities of a professional career. Business team members will work to enhance and expand the club’s image by engaging in activities such as marketing, promotion, financial management, and building relationships with external organizations.
