Integrated Business Program (IBP) Fall 2023 Cohort Donates over $18,000 to Charities

A big shout-out to the Fall 2023 Integrated Business Program (IBP) students for finishing the semester strong making impactful donations to their chosen charities. These teams worked extremely hard to sell their products, selected by each business, to generate profit.

Over 16 weeks, students not only bonded as a team but also dove into the real-life practicalities of running a business together–navigating rejection, managing inventory, and understanding communication within a team. On the flip side, they learned better leadership skills, improved organization habits, and explored great networking opportunities.

They celebrated at their end of the semester charity banquet. Where they invited a representative from each charity and presented them with a check containing all the hard-earned profits.
