ABA’s mission as a business organization is to develop well-rounded business leaders who put their skills to work and never compromise our humility, integrity, or passion for each other and the work that we do. As such, we provide our members with opportunities to gain hands on professional experience through various industry-focused projects.
Take Care of Each Other
College is stressful. Classes are difficult. Life is hard enough; let’s support each other, love each other, and respect each other. We’re all in this together after all.
Learn and Give Back
We believe in the importance of learning useful skills, applying said skills, and then teaching the next generation. Giving back with our time and expertise isn’t optional. It’s everything.
Success Through Collaboration
Everyone has the chance to work together and lead. Being a leader may feel unnatural at first, but we expect everyone to step up and own part of each project. It’s like playing basketball: It’s a team sport, but when someone passes you the ball, you’re in charge of what to do with it next.
Be Humble, Be Ambitious,
Everyone has something to teach and something to learn. We are one team, focused on the “we” rather than the “I,” and we express appreciation for each other. We think big and always ask “What’s next?” We’re tenacious in chasing our goals and hold ourselves to high standards.
Just Serious Enough
Our aim is to be professional, but not buttoned-up. Although we’re serious about accomplishing our goals, we remember that we’re also college students. If we’re not having fun, something’s wrong.
