Undergraduate Business Symposium

September 12-13, 2024

The UNC Undergraduate Business Symposium is one of the oldest and largest student-run career development events in the nation.

About the Event

Since its founding in 1984, Symposium has evolved into a series of events across the month of September, culminating in the main networking event in which top students and companies have the opportunity to connect with each other, engage in meaningful ways, and ultimately grow professionally. 

Highlights include:​

  • Networking session for Platinum sponsors Thursday night
  • Industry-specific programs to match students and companies with mutual interests Friday morning
  • Diversity and inclusion programming throughout the event
  • Networking luncheon with keynote speaker
  • Large-group traditional career fair style networking opportunity


The mission of the Undergraduate Business Symposium is to connect students, faculty, and company representatives to foster professional development. Engaging students with company representatives in networking activities and encouraging growth to help understand corporate culture and current business practices are primary to accomplish this goal.

This year that goal has never been more important, and it would not be possible to accomplish without our engaging and dynamic employer sponsors.

Symposium Core Committee

The Undergraduate Business Symposium is fully run by a 13 member team consisting of UNC's most dedicated and top student leaders.

Planning Symposium is an extensive 9-month process that comes with many challenges and successes.
