The Firebird Business and Finance Club had their first speaker on Wednesday. Maria Pirrone, an Accounting Professor at St. John’s University Tobin School of Business, came to speak to the students to share her knowledge of the business world. The students learned what accounting is and what earning a business degree in college would be like, as well as what kind of jobs a person could get after college.
Ms. Pirrone also gave a wonderful insight into what St. John’s University is like, and how their business school has grown and is ranked one of the top 100 in the country. The students learned about the study abroad program that the Tobin Business School has, and how important it is to learn in the global market, with business reaching all over the world now. Ms. Pirrone gave the students excellent advice that in the business world, it is all about how you conduct yourself and that being able to speak in public, make eye contact, and making connections is the way to further yourself in business endeavors.
