Follow Passion to Prosperity at the 2014 Black Business Students Association Conference


Some believe that passion is reserved for your personal life. The Black Business Students Association at Ross, however, recognizes that the excitement we feel for interests outside of the working world not only has a place in business, but can make a huge positive impact on your professional achievements.

This year’s Alfred L. Edwards Black Business Students Association Conference -- coming to Ross February 14 and 15 with the theme “Passion to Paycheck: Embracing the Road to Success” -- explores the importance of enjoying your career and how that can propel success in your business.

Steve-stoute.topSteve Stoute, a brand marketing innovator who’s worked for clients from State Farm to Lady Gaga, plus leadership development authority Trudy Bourgeois and diversity officer Jorge Quezada, will deliver the keynote address. The 2014 Alfred L. Edwards Conference will also feature panel discussions about leveraging business leadership to make a positive impact on the education system, gathering the tools for success in start-ups, and carving out passion-filled professional paths.

Ross students, faculty, and alumni make a positive difference in the world with their achievements, and the x factor behind those successes is the level of commitment that only genuine enthusiasm can inspire.

See for yourself at the 38th Alfred L. Edwards Black Business Students Association Conference how passion can make your work more meaningful, motivate you to think outside of the box, and bring a sense of personal fulfillment to your life as a whole.
