Student life

(Click for a complete list of Lubin student organizations.)

The Management Department supports a variety of extra-curricular activities including INFORMS (the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences) at the undergraduate level, which interests both management science majors and finance majors, and the Pi Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Iota Delta, the national honor society in the decision sciences, and the Pace Zeta Pi Chapter of Sigma Iota Epsilon, an honor society in management.

We have a club for management majors, the Lubin Business Association, and for international management majors, the International Management Organization. Further, we have a Pace Chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management for our human resources management majors. Hospitality and Tourism majors may join the Hospitality and Tourism Association (HATA) to gain educational experience beyond their coursework. For our highly rated entrepreneurship program, we offer the Pace Association of Collegiate Entrepreneurs, the Pace Pitch Contest, where students have the opportunity to "pitch" their ideas for entrepreneurial activity and win awards for their ideas, and our annual Entrepreneur in Residence program. For all majors, we offer field trips to other countries which enhance their understanding of other cultures and the differing business approaches in the world.

Management and management science clubs and organizations
Pi Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Iota Delta, the national honor society in the decision sciences, is dedicated to the ideal of solving the problems of mankind with humanity and rationality. Alpha Iota Delta was formed to foster the growth of these ideals within future generations of the decision sciences by conferring distinction upon a very select group of current students who have distinguished themselves in decision science curricula and who hold high promise in their careers.
