Photo Gallery: SBA Day 2011

November 28, 2011

November 17 was an unusual Thursday for Menlo College: there were no classes, but the campus was filled with people—students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The Menlo community gathered for the School of Business Administration (SBA) Day. The morning kicked off with a networking breakfast and keynote speech by Saeed Amidi, Menlo alumnus and Founder and CEO of Plug and Play Tech Center; after that everyone could choose one of six breakout sessions to attend. The day rounded up with a Mini-Business-Plan competition where five teams of freshmen presented their projects to a panel of judges, as well as their fellow students, faculty, and staff.
