Society of Minority Managers (SMM)

The Society of Minority Mangers (SMM) is set out to assist students of an underrepresented population within the business world in their quests for achievement.  Our members include alumni of the Business Opportunity Program (BOP) and a diverse mix of students in and outside of Krannert.  We provide opportunities for professional development through company networking sessions, resume assistance, and interview preparation strategies.  When it comes to academics, we offer community study tables every week and encourage academic excellence through the sharing of study strategies and experiences.  Our club is a cumulation of our members thus their success is our highest priority in all that we do.
