NABA sponsors several key programs and services designed to address the
needs of students majoring in the fields of accounting, finance, or business
administration. If you are a student interested in obtaining the tools
necessary to begin a successful career in business, obtaining competencies
that are not taught in the classroom such as Business Etiquette, Networking,
and Money Management, then NABA can equip you with these and more.
Going to school alone is no longer enough to succeed, you have to actively
participate at your university. UH NABA can help facilitate your success.
