Wednesday, February 04, 2015 - Become a b-school student ambassador

Are you an Oakland University business student who aspires to excel? Are you a natural born leader? Are you committed to a good quality education? Do you have great ideas?

If you answer “yes” to any of those questions, then the OU business school is looking for you.

Undergraduate business school students have a new opportunity to build their network, and professional and leadership skills through the Business School Student Ambassador program.


Each academic year a group of 15-20 undergraduate students will be selected. The b-school student ambassadors will receive invitations to attend various events throughout the academic school year, assist in giving presentations, represent the OU business school with prospective students and their families, take part in student panels, and be members of the school’s first student advisory board. They will also have opportunities to meet and network with b-school alumni and other industry leaders.


Through the activities, student ambassadors will enhance their resume with key business skills such as leadership, public speaking and collaboration.

To be considered, applicants must meet the following qualifications:

  • Be familiar with OU and the SBA
  • Be a pre-business or business major
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Possess strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Commit to at least 2-3 events each semester which includes nights, weekends and on and off campus
  • Attended OU in the previous semester 
  • Attend the mandatory training sessions
