Campus Profile: AHANA Management Academy

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

This week I had the opportunity to interview some of the Executive Board members from AHANA Management Academy! They hosted their first ABLE (AHANA Business Leaders Experience) Conference (http://bcheights.com/news/features/2016/ahana-management-academy/)  this past October and now they are planning their events for Spring Semester. Read more to learn all about AMA!


What is AHANA Management Academy?

AHANA Management is a pre-professional organization for AHANA students that aims to prepare the AHANA community for competitive careers in all business fields. AMA is the bridge between top corporations and the AHANA community here at BC. We aim to assist students of color with networking and etiquette while being mindful of challenges the AHANA community faces in and out of the workplace.

Do you have to be in CSOM to be a part of the organization?

While some may see “Management” and automatically think CSOM, we welcome students of diverse backgrounds and studies to be a part of our organization. We tend to have many CSOM students and A&S students who are interested in business, management, and other creative fields.

Do you have to identify as AHANA to be a part of AMA?

AMA is open to students of all ethnicities and races. AMA was created to be a channel for students to meet recruiters and AHANA alumni, but it is not restricted to those who identify as AHANA.

How can I be know when AMA is hosting an event on campus?

You should follow us on Facebook HERE! We post all of our events on our FB page. We are also on Instagram @AHANAManagementAcademy()

What programs do you offer for freshmen?

We all know the transition from high school to college can be difficult which is why we started our very own mentorship program three years ago. AHANA Management Development Program (AMDP) is a selective year-long mentorship program for freshmen with workshops hosted by the Career Center and their directors. This program helps many of our freshmen mentees get internships leading to job offers.

What is your favorite event of the year?

Our favorite event of the year is our PWC Etiquette Dinner. Each year, PwC and AMA host the Etiquette Dinner in Yawkey with a three-course meal in Yawkey teaching BC students how business etiquette, in a professional dinner setting and informing BC students of professional opportunities at PwC. The food is amazing and everyone learns so much! Each year, we end up with a waitlist for this event so be sure to follow us on Facebook to find out.


Thank you to the AHANA Management Academy Executive Board for allowing us to interview them! We can’t wait to see what events they will hold Spring Semester!
