AnderTech Kick-Off Night/101 Series
Highlighted with a keynote speaker from a top tech firm, this event allows new members to learn about the club’s mission, programming and available leadership positions. New members have the opportunity to connect with second-year club members as the club celebrates the beginning of a new school year.

AnderTech 102: Recruiting and Etiquette
This follow-up event to AnderTech 101 dives into the club’s etiquette expectations and recruiting process. The event covers accountability procedures as well as tech recruiting statistics, and outlines the Interview Prep Team (IPT) program and the various resources available through AnderTech. The event is followed by a Kickoff Mixer for the entire membership and features a keynote speaker.

CES Conference and Multi-School Case Competition
In the 2018-2019 school year, AnderTech will launch a multi-school case competition in conjunction with the Easton Center CES Conference in January. Anderson students will compete against other top business schools in this company-sponsored event.

AnderTech Hack-a-Thon
This is a new venture aimed at giving teams of students hands-on experience building a minimum viable product. Held over the course of one week, students will team up with classmates and computer science graduate students to design a product, bring it to life, create a go-to-market strategy and present it to a judging panel of senior-level tech mentors. The program also includes several workshops ahead of the competition and optional mentorship provided through the Easton Center.

Case Competitions
AnderTech offers the opportunity to its members to participate in case competitions sponsored by companies within the tech industry. Past sponsors include Amazon, Microsoft, AT&T, T-Mobile and others. Students form small teams to deliver a recommendation to resolve a specific prompt provided by the company facing a business challenge. These competitions provide a chance for students to apply their business prowess in a hands-on forum and to network with practitioners and recruiters from the sponsoring companies.

Etiquette Night

Technology Career Night
Alumni, recruiters and other representatives from more than 20 technology firms join members of AnderTech for an evening of networking, recruiting advice and career exploration. This is one of AnderTech’s signature events, and it includes opportunities to learn about traditional technology roles, such as product manager or product marketing manager, as well as other roles in or related to the tech industry, such as those in finance, operations, program management and marketing.
