ROCK THE BOAT MBA Finance major Cindy Wen-Hsin Kan, MBA Marketing major Gregoire Poyet-Smith, and MBA Marketing major Sarah Yi-Wen Su took a break during the Ship Channel Tour. 106^ Organizations The most notable function of IMBAS, though, was the groups connection to the many business organizations in Houston. Through round-table conferences with different speakers from professors to consulates, the members discussed topical issues of different regions. Many companies worked with IMBAS to set up mixers and recruitment nights, where the students could learn about that company. Through these events, the students formed networks of contacts who could help them when the time came to find employment in the business world. In an effort to facilitate membership, the group was very relaxed. There were no membership dues, and they avoided as much as possible a bureaucratic atmosphere.
