Phi Beta Lambda - Future Business Leaders of America

Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) is a nation-wide organization that helps college students become more real-world ready by connecting them to local professionals from a variety of industries. We have noticed that who you know is sometimes as important as what you know, and because of that we have a strong focus on networking! We also offer leadership opportunities for motivated individuals. Our meetings are held every other week and we would love to see you there!


What can the Southeastern's PBL do for you?
