What Is 2BLeaders?

At the UCO College of Business, we know we are not just in the business of imparting knowledge to our students. Our job is to inspire new leaders to act. We are taking our students outside the classroom and challenging them to think, to implement and to lead. 2BLeaders engages students to take that next step toward leadership.
