Future Business Leaders of America–Phi Beta Lambda is the largest student business organization in the nation. At the UC Berkeley chapter, our distinguishing feature is our organizational structure. 6 project teams, known as committees, focus on different areas in business education, personal development, and media production. We pride ourselves in the diversity of perspectives of our members, through not only their specializations within PBL, but also beyond. Although we are a business organization, only about a third of our members major in business. Others come from a variety of disciplines, from Computer Science to Theater & Performance Studies.
Our goal is to help every member develop personally and professionally. Apart from projects members will complete within their committees, the executive team organizes club-wide workshops and mentorship programs aimed at shaping members into impactful business leaders.
The UC Berkeley chapter of FBLA–PBL aims to develop business leaders who care about making an impact in the world. To that end goal, we serve these three stages of a member’s personal and professional development:
The purpose of FBLA-PBL is to provide additional opportunities for college students in business, business-related fields, and/or other majors to develop vocational and career-supportive competencies for business and office occupations and business-teacher education.The mission of PBL is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs. We bring our mission to life through the application of our motto: Service, Education, and Progress.
