Phi Beta Lambda (PBL)


About Us

Imagine building a portfolio of documented accomplishment as a complement to your academic experience. During a job interview, you can demonstrate how you served in a leadership position for the largest collegiate business student organization in the world. At the same time, you will have entered one or more professional competitive events where you have finished as the very best in the nation.

PBL isn't just another student group — it gives members that opportunity to learn, travel, and grow as a business professional. Employers are looking for students with cutting-edge skills. PBL gives members the chance to gain these skills and prepares them for the "real-world" after college. PBL16.jpgSet yourself apart from the average graduate! In today's highly competitive business environment it takes more than just a degree to succeed. It requires business savvy, leadership skills, and technical knowledge. By taking advantage of the many programs that Phi Beta Lambda offers, students acquire the skills that will set them apart from the average graduate. They will be better prepared for careers, graduate school and for life!
