Collegiate Women In Business (CWIB) at Virginia Tech was created in the spring of 2014 by Gina French, former Chief of Staff of the Pamplin College of Business. A panel of female business professors and students was assembled to further discuss the idea and help it become a reality.
Five undergraduate students were the founders of our organization, officially becoming registered with the university on June 26th, 2014. Their hope is to expand over time as a well-known group of business professionals that helps foster the guiding principles of the organization: EMPOWER, PREPARE & CONNECT.
Why should I join CWIB?
Collegiate Women In Business can teach you how to succeed in a competitive professional environment, provide you with helpful, relevant information for your career/internship search, create opportunities for you to network with representatives from major corporations, allow you to interact with faculty members and alumni in an informal setting, and present an opportunity for you to meet other students, make new friends, and have FUN!
Who can join?
Any undergraduate students at Virginia Tech are welcome to join, regardless of major or gender. We value being an organization of people with diverse interests. We also invite VT alumni to become members of our organization.
