Leadership Opportunities

Menlo prepares students to be exceptional business leaders. Our small size means more opportunities for leadership roles on campus, which help you develop skills to excel in the workplace and beyond. There are student clubs and organizations, student government offices, volunteer opportunities, and paid positions—all of which look great on a resume and provide practical knowledge you can only get from experience.

Each year, Student Affairs hosts our annual Leadership Day where students can learn more about leadership positions on campus, listen to motivational speakers, and even learn some dress-for-success tips as part of the program.

Clubs and Organizations

There’s a club for every interest here at Menlo (and if you can’t find yours, we’ll help you get it started). Officer positions and committee roles teach important skills for the workplace, and give you the chance to discover natural leadership talents.

Most clubs choose to operate in a corporate manner and elect officers from among its members.
