ELITE Program

ELITE has given me the chance to advance my professional skills and network and has given me opportunities that most freshman in business do not have access to. I have grown tremendously in just a year and cannot imagine having the success I've had in my first year here at UA without the coaching and support of the Eller Leadership Board and ELITE.
