        Harbert College of Business online graduate students participating in CAMP Harbert come to campus in May to network with faculty and fellow students and experience the traditions and places unique to Auburn.

        Auburn online graduate business students are participating this week in CAMP Harbert, a unique 3.5-day experience that immerses them in the traditions and places the Auburn Family calls home.

        The Conference for Auburn Masters Programs (CAMP) is an elective experience that allows online graduate business students to converge on Auburn’s campus like full-time students while participating in professional development and networking events. This is the second year the Harbert College of Business has hosted the event, which began as an outlet for online students unable to attend campus orientations due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

        "Our online graduate business programs draw students from across the nation. Regardless of their location, they become part of the Auburn Family as soon as they enroll, said Jim Parrish, executive director of Full Time and Online Graduate and International Programs. "The goal of CAMP Harbert is to allow our online students to build a community of learners, strengthen their professional and academic networks and embrace the Auburn campus experience. For those that choose this campus engagement, we feel that it enhances the degree they are seeking on a part-time basis.”

        After an initial welcome reception with faculty and staff, students will have the opportunity over the next three days to explore Jordan-Hare Stadium, play golf at the Auburn University Club, take part in a cross-campus 5K run and campus tour, compete in the CAMP Harbert Business Case Challenge, see the new Rane Culinary Sciences Center and meet Auburn's current War Eagle, Aurea.

        The Harbert College of Business offers a variety of online graduate business programs, including master's degrees in accountancy, finance, information systems, and supply chain management.
