The BEPP Club is a student organization driven by Kelley students with a passion for thinking critically and understanding not only how things work, but why. We are comprised of majors ranging from Marketing to Business Economics, to Data Analytics, and minors spanning from Psychology, Sustainability to International Business. Students of any level in BEPP Club have a chance to embrace new perspectives and new ideas as they enhance their understanding of the expanding business world we thrive in.
What we do
BEPP club seeks to facilitate the development of students’ qualitative skills, analytical thinking, and understanding of economic business strategy while building a connection between students, faculty, and the industry. We aim to serve as the medium to engage students outside of the classroom in fun and interactive ways, allowing you to develop your own skills to enhance marketability with recruiters. To do so, we facilitate student interaction with industry leaders, encourage knowledge growth, and establish methodologies through discussions, workshops, case competitions, and other programming that promotes such knowledge sharing. We are dedicated to equipping our members with the tools to begin answering the deceptively complex question
Why we do it
We know that the business landscape is constantly changing. For reasons spanning from new technology, to popular trends, the business world is always in flux. By understanding and identifying the underlying reasons for change, we can better understand the ramifications of that change and adapt to our business environment, empowering us to provide more targeted business solutions. We believe that collaboration is the key to innovative success, so we seek to promote that collaboration within the BEPP major and other like-minded student groups in the hopes that our shared knowledge will pay dividends to every member involved. These dividends will be realized in the form of leadership conferences, internships, and ultimately full-time employment in any field that values and utilizes critical thinking skills to solve business problems.
How we do it
We rely on two main fundamental factors to accomplish this goal. Firstly, we enjoy the support of the Kelley School of Business’ Business Economics and Public Policy department which provides us with valuable and influential connections to industry leaders who are looking for more direct cooperation with students like us. This gives us the creative freedom to choose from a wide variety of firms and events. Secondly, our interest in new ideas from our members ensures that the creative freedom given to us does not go to waste. We aim to get input from our members to determine what type of events will be the most beneficial for the group. In effect, we are a club driven by our members and for our members.
