Cheyney University's newest organization, the Cheyney Business Club (CBC), is ready to help you learn how to deal with money. The CBC is part of the Collegiate DECA international Chapter which prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in colleges around the globe.

Starting this spring, the CBC would like to show Cheyney students, faculty and staff how to get money and keep it.  The CBC will conduct events, workshops, and projects centered on the theme Show Me the Money: Wealth Accumulation and Management. The workshops will include topics like: résumé building, salary negotiation, budgeting, credit reports, multiple streams of income, and other related topics. All events will feature speakers who are entrepreneurs, bank/credit union representatives, securities professionals, and others experts in the fields of wealth accumulation and money management.

“Students need to think about life after graduation,” said Professor Marvin Lawrence, CBC Faculty Advisor. “This club will help prepare them for success after graduation. Our goal is to bring successful people here who can tell us how they did it.”

CBC Officers are: President, John Cooper; Vice President, Keisha Harris; Treasurer, Julian Dun;
Secretary, Tamara Russell.
