Student Retailing Association
To learn about retailing outside of the classroom and to encourage students to build contacts among their peers in retailing at Texas A&M University, the center sponsors the Student Retailing Association (SRA). With more than 70 members, from all different majors, including communication, marketing, bio-medical science, sociology, accounting and finance, SRA is one of the largest student organizations at Mays Business School.
Throughout the year, SRA hosts more than a dozen industry representatives who discuss topics such as how to network, developing leadership potential, entrepreneurship and transitioning from college to corporate. Previous speakers have included Dillard’s, The Container Store, Walmart, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s and Sewell Automotive.
Members also have exclusive opportunities to network one-on-one with recruiters at the Retailing Career Fair during the fall and spring semesters by hosting visiting companies.
