The Lee Business School Ambassador Program is led by Dana Angioni, M.Ed. The school strives to offer our ambassadors experiences customized to meet their individual educational needs. With this goal in mind, each ambassador is provided the opportunity to receive mentoring from top business executives in the ambassador's field of interest and to develop professional contacts while honing networking skills. Ambassadors also benefit from priority registration, allowing for custom-built academic plans. Ultimately, the program is designed to enrich students with the skills needed well beyond UNLV's campus.
LBS ambassadors hold a unique position within the school, engaging with distinguished alumni, business leaders, and community partners. They attend events ranging from small, private breakfasts with visiting speakers to large college functions such as the Nevada Business Hall of Fame. Ambassadors are also a driving force within the Lee Business School, working with the school's partners, such as business CSUN senators, club presidents, and honor societies to plan events meant to enrich students' experiences at UNLV. LBS ambassadors' support and participation are necessary to ensure that goals and program plans become reality.
To qualify for the LBS Ambassador program, students must have at least junior standing, be admitted to a business major, and hold and maintain a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA. All applicants must show strong involvement and leadership in at least one campus organization. In order to be considered for the program, submit an application (including all essays and references) to the front desk of BEH 100, the Undergraduate Advising Center.

BUS 103: Business Connection's Learning Community
The BUS 103 experience is comprised of two courses (BUS 103 and COM 101 or ENG) linked in a way that helps students to foster relationships with their peers thereby enhancing the educational experience. This opportunity is an exclusive experience for incoming freshman business students.
Compared with non-learning community freshman, those who participate in learning communities typically perform better in college as is reflected in GPA, in the number of students remaining in college, as well as in the number of students who achieve graduation.
The Business Connection learning communities have been designed to provide students the opportunity to couple their classroom learning with a community-based and business-related event. Students will learn about the many areas of a business while also learning skills for college success and for personal and professional development. In each learning community, 20 students will work together to plan, coordinate and host a special event. The proceeds of which will benefit a local community non-profit organization. Through the activities necessary to make the event a reality, students will begin to develop an understanding of the various aspects and functions within any business organization.
