Student Opportunities

Business Club

As one of the more popular social clubs at Pacific Union College, the Business Club provides students with a number of opportunities to mix and create lasting memories. The club is open to all majors, thus making it more eclectic. The group is led by eight officers and a faculty sponsor.

The major events include a camping weekend in the fall, usually at Yosemite National Park, a snow skiing long weekend at South Lake Tahoe in the winter, and water skiing or beach trip in the spring. In addition, every quarter the Club hosts a dinner and pre-vespers event on a Friday night.

The Club raises funds for its trips by participating in the campus-wide Fall and Spring Festivals, and other projects in the community.

With fund-raising and corporate sponsors the Club is able to provide benefits beyond the nominal membership fee.

Business Scholarships

Although not many in number, there are several scholarships available to Business majors at Pacific Union College. The Edgar Cleveland scholarship is available to married business students. The Pam Wheeler scholarship is available to those taking the accounting emphasis within the BBA degree program. A new scholarship of approximately $10,000 is available to those with a real need and high academic performance.

Employment Opportunities

Business majors are often hired by local businesses to do accounting or finance work. But probably more students work in the many restaurants in the Napa Valley, to help defray their educational expenses. A number of job opportunities also exist within the Business Department as readers, tutors, and lab assistants for various classes.

Internships & Career Opportunities

Students who graduate under the 2013/2014 or later catalogs will be required to complete an internship as part of their graduation requirements. The business department has an internship coordinator who will provide assistance to students seeking internships to fulfill this requirement. Multiple interviewing opportunities will be scheduled throughout the year for internships and permanent positions.
