Partners in Business Club

Welcome to the University of New England Partners in Business Club. We strive to engage UNE students in activities that develop the skills necessary to succeed in today’s business world. The club offers a selection of valuable educational events and an expansive business network, positioning members to apply their academic learning to the launch of successful careers. We travel to business focused events and career fairs, meet local business leaders, and engage the larger UNE community in business initiatives.

The competition is open to all undergraduate, graduate and online students at UNE, who may enter as individuals or teams. It includes for-profit and not-for-profit tracks.
