The BB&T Student Leadership Center delivers professional, leadership and career development opportunities to business majors in Appalachian State University’s Walker College of Business. We inspire and engage students and connect their academic experience to the business world.

Our name

The mission of the Walker College of Business is to prepare business students to be responsible, effective leaders and professionals in a rapidly changing, global environment. Intrinsic to BB&T’s mission is the goal to help the world become a better place and one of the ways in which BB&T manifests this mission is to help train and develop future business leaders. In recognition of the strong relationship and the desire by both Appalachian State and BB&T to continue to develop and embrace a culture of leadership, in 2011 BB&T funded the BB&T Student Leadership Center. 

Our culture

The center’s culture is focused on career centered-outcomes through the development of leadership and professional skills. We manifest an environment that is full of spirit, enthusiasm, passion and vitality – an environment that welcomes students, alumni and employers where ever they are in the career search cycle.

Our counselors

Our counselors help students develop the soft skills necessary to secure part-time jobs, internships, and full-time career positions. They can help with resume and cover letter writing, job search strategies, interview skills, and much more.

Students can stop by during Drop-In Hour, Monday through Thursday (3:30pm-4:30pm) or make an appointment on CareerGear.
