Harvard Undergraduate Women in Business Intercollegiate Business Convention: October 18

Each year, Harvard Undergraduate Women in Business organizes the Intercollegiate Business Convention, a forum for driven young women to discuss relevant and emerging trends, gain both concrete skills and applicable advice, and join a network of encouraging peers and inspiring professionals who will guide and engage them throughout their careers. Now in its tenth year, IBC attracts over 1,200 registrants and over 100 professionals from a diverse range of industries. This year, IBC attendees will have the opportunity to hear from three inspirational keynote speakers: Lyndsey Scott, Maureen Chiquet, and Jill Abramson. Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from speakers in a variety of fields on panels and workshops throughout the day. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to build their professional network during the career fair and networking sessions with company representatives. There will be representatives from over 100 companies in attendance including Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Oliver Wyman, Morgan Stanley, and Saks Fifth Avenue, so this is a great opportunity for those students who are looking to secure a job or internship for next summer.

IBC 2014 will be held on Saturday October 18 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. The convention is the keystone event of Women in Business Weekend, which will be held from Thursday to Sunday, October 16-19, 2014. The weekend will be composed of social events and additional learning opportunities, including innovation workshops, networking events, and the launch of our annual publication, Make it Happen Magazine.

We are reaching out to you in particular because we would like to strengthen our connections with the Boston community, and we would love to meet some of your students at the convention this fall. For this reason, we are pleased to offer your students a $10 discount on convention tickets! You can register now at attend.com/IBC using the promotional code ibc.x.boston to receive this discount. Attached please find a brief informational packet about IBC 2014. For updated information regarding speakers and daily programming, please visit our website or our Facebook page.

Add-Drop is now over for the Fall 2014 semester

Tuesday, September 9 was the last day to be able to add a course for the semester, or to be able to drop a course without a “W”.  If Wiser shows that you are still on a wait list for the fall semester, you can either drop yourself from that wait list, or not – it actually doesn’t matter at this time since Wiser will no longer be adding students to courses from the wait list through it’s automated process.  If you are still on a waitlist, you should also stop attending that course (if you haven’t stopped already).

The next chance to register for classes that you might not have gotten into this semester is on Monday, November 3 for Spring 2015 semester courses. Best wishes for a great fall semester!
