Business Professionals of America A Project of Student Life
Who we are
Business Professionals of America is a student organization that helps to prepare students to pursue careers in business management, office administration, information technology, and related fields. Their mission is to contribute to the preparation of a world-class workforce through the advancement of leadership, citizenship, academic, and technological skills.
Recently, Davenport University students broke their own national record of 16 first-place finishes by earning 21 first-place awards at the BPA annual National Leadership Conference. 43 DU students competed against more than 5,500 students from 24 different states and earned 105 Top Ten finishes.
Over the past seven years, Davenport students have earned first place awards in 84 national BPA events.
How can you help?
Business Professionals of America's members participate in activities at the local, regional, state, and national levels. Involvement in these competitions give students applicable experience that will serve them as they enter the workforce. While rewarding, these competitions are also costly and students rely on outside support to ensure their full participation.
