Asian Business Club (ABC)
Fuqua's Asian Business Club is committed to being a focal organization for Asian graduate business students at Duke University. Our goal has been to help integrate Asian students into the Fuqua community through involvement and collaboration with other Fuqua units. At the same time we serve as a link for the Fuqua community and the Asian region. The club's purpose includes:
- Fostering strong and long-lasting friendships within the ABC and between its members, the Fuqua community, and other Asian organizations, both at Duke University and at other MBA schools
- Assisting all ABC members in the management of their career objectives, including learning about and generating career opportunities for members both in the U.S. and in Asia
- Actively promoting Fuqua's brand throughout Asia and within Asian communities across the world by partnering with alumni and the admissions office.

European Business Club
The aim of the European Business Club is to promote European interests at Fuqua and Fuqua interests in Europe.
Our goal is to facilitate and help in the job search for those Fuqua students, both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens, interested in working in Europe as well as increasing knowledge and awareness of European issues. In this respect, we maintain close contacts with other Fuqua clubs involved in parallel activities and with alumni in Europe.
INDUS is the South Asian Business Club at Fuqua. The purpose of INDUS is to promote awareness of the cultures in the countries of the Indian subcontinent—India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan—and to provide a homey atmosphere for the students and families from the region. INDUS is comprised of students and partners who participate in community events such as Navratri, and Fuqua events such as Fuqua Friday and the International Food and Music Festival.
