Business Student Associations
There are 17 student organizations within the Lang School of Business, and the LSA operates as the Primary Student Organization (PSO) or “umbrella”. Since the LSA does not represent any specific major, we support, advocate and provide opportunities for all 3600 Lang students at the University of Guelph.
The LSA supports and collaborates with the other 17 accredited and affiliated business student organizations (ASOs) to host events and initiatives that target the specific majors and interests of the students at Lang.
Join an ASO: Most ASOs hire Brand Ambassadors in September and full team members in April. You can join any team regardless of your major. By joining an ASO you will attend meetings and plan events for students to attend. Check out each ASOs Instagram page to get more information on their applications.
Attend Events: Follow each ASO on Instagram to stay up to date with all Lang events. Each ASO hosts several events targets to areas in business. Expand your horizons and business knowledge by attending events outside of your major.
Stay up-to-date on everything happening in the Lang community, below are our 16 student associations for you to connect with on Instagram!

All members of the LSA share one common goal – to provide opportunities to Lang students in order to help them optimize their university experience, make meaningful connections and feel prepared for their professional future.
