OAAA also organizes a dynamic annual Careers Forum during which they bring leaders from academia and industry to campus in order to tackle contemporary topics and pressing issues pertaining to the current and future state of the job market, as well as to take a look at all the opportunities which our students and alumni can benefit from.
