Business Night 2021 (Virtual)

Scene from Business Night 2019: Two students at lecturn addressing a nearly full ballroom

The Shidler College of Business is celebrating its 60th annual Business Night event, bringing together students with local business professionals for an evening of scholarly recognition and mentoring.

This event provides many students with their first connections with the business community and fosters the networking and mentoring process. In years past, Shidler students have benefitted from the event through career development opportunities, internships, and community service projects.

Additionally, we are pleased to recognize many students at the event for their outstanding academic achievements.

If you are interested in being an award sponsor next year, please contact Kristi Bates, Executive Director of Development, at (808) 956-3597 or kristi.bates@uhfoundation.org
