KeyBank Day at the Monte Ahuja College of Business is an exclusive career networking-information session and recruiting event. It began in 2014 because of Key's interest in recruiting for internship and full-time career rotational programs. KeyBank selected the Monte Ahuja College of Business for this unique annual event due to their interest in retaining talented CSU college graduates in the greater Cleveland area; as well as developing future business leaders.

This year, due to COVID-19; the event will be virtual. Students should register on Brazen here. The event will still offer the same structure.
