Laying the Foundation for Career Success

In fall 2021, ten high school juniors and seniors donned virtual reality headsets in a classroom at Effie Kokrine Charter School. While there was plenty of laughter, students weren’t playing games. They were participating in virtual career shadowing, experiencing a day in the life of one of several professions, such as nurse or auto mechanic.

CBSM Students Network Near & Far

After a two year hiatus, in-person student experiences are making a comeback! Over spring break, the Great Alaskan Accounting People student organization met with firms and accountants in Anchorage and Fairbanks. Also this spring, two members of the Associated Students of Business student organization joined a trip to San Francisco, California, organized by the National Millennial and GenZ Community.

The Party Never Ends at CBSM

The University of Alaska Fairbanks celebrated their 100th commencement on Saturday, April 30, 2022. To safely celebrate, two short, student-centered ceremonies were held and College of Business and Security Management students walked across the stage in the afternoon. CBSM hosted a Commencement Celebration before the official ceremony so that faculty, staff, families and students could gather outside Bunnell Building for one last hoorah.
