Bowling Green State University
February 2016

It is hard to believe that spring break is just around the corner and spring semester is nearly half over. Our students, faculty and alumni continue Going Beyond Business as Usual.

We have a team of accounting majors who know what running a multi-million dollar company is all about, one of our faculty members has been researching in India and a host of events has provided our students unique career opportunities.

Business students have teamed up with Hickory Farms to gain real-world experience. Our alumni are making the news and the College of Business is making a name for itself throughout the world.

Please let me know of any success stories you would like to share in Biz News!

Warm regards,
Raymond Braun '80
Dean, College of Business
