The Haas Undergraduate Black Business Association (HUBBA), the Latino Business Student Association (LBSA) and the Partnership for Pre-Professional Pilipinos (P4) held a Business Social in the Multicultural Center on Tuesday, October 19, 2010.
Representatives from various firms including KPMG, Deloitte, Ernst and Young, Gap Inc., Macy’s, Google, Wells Fargo, Bridgespan Group, Hitachi Consulting, Target, Prudential, CBS Interactive, Abercrombie and Fitch, Altria, and T-Mobile were present and helped make this event a major success.
The event served as a great networking opportunity for many of the members of the organizations and students. In order to exercise teamwork and innovation, all participants played a game called Tycoon Wars. Students along with representatives from different firms and organizations broke into groups and created a prototype out of a limited selection of materials. Afterwards, each group divided themselves into buyers and sellers, allowing participants to peruse other prototypes and market their own product. A common theme within the prototypes were eco-friendly, student-oriented products. The time and dedication HUBBA, LBSA, and P4 put forth for the event led to the production of a rewarding and fun evening.
