About Our Organization
Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) is a business organization grounded in the pillars of professional, philanthropic, and social development. As the world’s largest and oldest student professional business organization, we are the premier resource on Pitt’s campus for professional growth and career opportunities. PBL offers many workshops and lectures led by successful business leaders within our strong alumni and professional network. Members also have the opportunity to compete in business-related events with other PBL chapters from schools across the nation, creating an even larger network of business leaders. Additionally, PBL dedicates a large part of its membership to philanthropic efforts, partnering with various organizations including March of Dimes and Pitt Pantry to create a lasting service learning connection. Phi Beta Lambda’s mission is to create a lasting network of business leaders who share the values of inclusivity, determination, and leadership.
In our 17th year of operation on Pitt’s campus, we are looking to increase our outreach both in the College of Business Administration (CBA) and across the city of Pittsburgh. In the CBA, we are hoping to increase our participation and collaboration with minority-run business organizations. As an organization, we are incredibly passionate about instituting DE&I practices and principles in our daily operations and in the deep-rooted culture of our group. With increased funds, we would have the opportunity to host seminar-focused events that would provide a platform for minority business leaders and organizations to engage with the PBL community in a dialogue about what we can do to further our and the CBA’s efforts in instituting DE&I into our communities.
Moreover, as the collegiate counterpart to Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), we are looking to provide outreach about personal financial literacy and professional development to local high school students in the Pittsburgh area. Annually, PBL hosts the Pitt Business Leadership Conference (PBLC) in which we host a few local high schools and walk them through presentations about financial health, tips and tricks for adapting to college life, and majors and minors of interest in the CBA. With increased funds, we would have the opportunity to expand this conference to more schools and increase the variety of seminars and presentations we could provide the students. By increasing the strength of our outreach in the Pittsburgh area, we are fulfilling our mission as the collegiate branch of FBLA, providing future business leaders with the resources to expand their professional and personal repertoire.
