Fall semester has been fantastic and we are proud of the many accomplishments. During Homecoming Weekend, we celebrated the Falcon spirit with alumni, faculty, staff, students and donors. We also moved a dream toward reality with the groundbreaking of the Robert W. and Patricia A. Maurer Center – opening in the fall of 2020.
BGSU honored its 2018 Class of the Academy of Distinguished Alumni which included business graduate George N. Miller Jr. ’73, president and CEO of The Loretto Hospital, a nonprofit safety-net hospital on the west side of Chicago.
One of our supply chain management students, Greg Wobser, received the prestigious Student Voluntary Service Award presented by APICS. Greg is the sixth BGSU student to receive this international award since 2009.
We welcomed members of the AACSB Peer Review Team earlier this month for the purpose of re-accrediting our business and accounting programs. We look forward to AACSB’s final decision in April. Currently, we are among the top 1% of business schools worldwide accredited in both business and accounting.
We congratulate the winners of the BGSU Sales Competition. First place went to junior Collin Levandowski, a sales and services marketing and international business student; second place was sophomore Hayden Kuzma, specializing in sales and services marketing; and sophomore Josh Wolpert, also a sales and services marketing student, won third place. The top two students advance to the National Collegiate Sales Competition where BGSU has a tradition of success.
Looking ahead to next year, we are gearing up for Entrepreneurship Week (E-Week) April 8 – 12, an outstanding celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit.
As we enter the holiday season, we have much to appreciate at the College of Business. My best wishes for you and your family and friends!
