S3 Club Meetings

At the root of a bright future is living with integrity, guided by compassion, honesty and optimism. In fact, according to a study by Bentley University, the top quality sought by employers in hiring millennials is integrity. But, what is integrity?

Integrity is not something you have or don't have. Integrity is part of our development into people who "have the courage to meet the demands of reality." Integrity consists of six essential qualities that determine success.

In 2018-19 executives, managers, and employees from all relevant track areas (Brand Strategy, Data Strategy & Sales Leadership) will engage with students in hands-on training and experiential learning.
