For Education

Additional education is imperative to fully developing yourself. While the C.T. Bauer College of Business does an outstanding job with its curriculum, there are always ways of continuing learning outside the classroom, this is just the first step.

For Development

Developing yourself not only personally but professionally is what student organizations strive to offer. Our success is based on your development outside the classroom. We at Bauer Sourcing and Procurement Organization offer events to not only market yourself but to network and obtain those contacts imperative for future leaders.

For Experience

Reading about it is one thing, while experiencing it is another. Exercising what you have learned in the classroom is experience you cannot grab on paper. Bauer SPO offers that experience that relates directly to our curriculum.
