Business Week is a one-week celebration focusing on the Carlson School and its connections to the business community. Now in its 58th year, this student-coordinated event connects students, faculty, and business professionals in a collaborative effort to realize current successes, celebrate past accomplishments, and anticipate future endeavors. We are excited to host a full week of activities and events for our students.
