STARTING A STUDENT CHAPTER
Purpose of a BBA Student Chapter
A BBA student chapter helps reinforce classroom and experiential learning. In addition to the learning that occurs during chapter meetings, the submission of research articles to the JBBA journal helps develop industry-specific skills, along with skills in project management, technical writing and interpersonal communications.
Chapter activities culminate at the annual scholars in Blockchain conference, where students interact with students from other chapters, BBA members and advisors and network with industry leaders, scientists, and researchers.
The BBA recognises that students are the future leaders of the industry, and treats them as such. Chapters instil future professionals with an understanding of the role that collaboration, research, development and networking plays in blockchain developments and industry progress.
