NUMA members at the annual NGA Tradeshow, Las Vegas, 2022
The Holzschuh College of Business Administration offers a variety of business clubs to help students expand both professionally and personally. Dr. Shawn Daly, professor of marketing, states,
“The activities of the NU College of Business student organizations continue to expand and the clubs take on increasingly important directions. These accomplishments encompass high-value community service, as well as engaging in events that build the awareness of the institution in business and the community at large. We’re proud of what the students achieve and, in turn, I believe their activities are rewarded in the marketplace through the positions they are offered upon graduation.”

NU_Finance is a prestigious organization that not only goes into financial management, but also offers many different ways students can utilize their financial skills, both in and outside of Niagara University. There are several opportunities that we offer such as managing solid financial portfolio’s to creating portfolios such as the Niagara Global Micro Finance Fund. Micro financing incorporates different financial services such as loans, insurance and savings to entrepreneurs in developing third-world countries. Recently, NU_Finance partnered with Kiva, a nonprofit organization that works with field partners and micro financing institutions in companies without traditional banking systems to help entrepreneurs start their business. We also offer several financial workshops that we, as an association, hold for the entire university. The workshop topics consist of student loan debt, auto financing, individual financing, healthcare, and investments. We also hold annual visits to the financial district of Toronto, Canada, where students will have the opportunity to not only network with NU alumni, but also get the chance to tour different firms from recruitment to investment banking. Our annual Chicago trip exposes students to the Commodities Mercantile Exchange to give them a firsthand look into that sector of finance. We also have our New York City visit, which consists of the Quinnipiac Global Asset Management Education (G.A.M.E) conference co-sponsored by NASDAQ and CNBC, where students are allowed to pick from dozens of top financial professionals and sit in on their keynote panels and separate modules.
Niagara University Marketing Association (NUMA)
The Niagara University Marketing Association (NUMA), a collegiate chapter in affiliation with the Rochester branch of the American Marketing Association, was formed to enlighten interested students in the functions and operations of marketing.

NUMA believes that learning by doing is the best way for students to gain real world marketing experience, which is accomplished by offering their skills, as a group, to Niagara University and the surrounding community. They are working with the Niagara University sports teams, the United Way of Greater Niagara, Recycle for a Cause, as well as other groups to assist in marketing and research. Membership is open to any student pursuing a career in the fields of marketing and management.
