Congratulations Graduates!

 

Congratulations to all the 2016-17 SOM Graduates!

On Saturday, May 6, 2017 they celebrated the culmination of hours of studying, numerous papers and presentations, and stressful exams. Combine all that with juggling work, family, and out-of-classroom activities necessary to prepare for careers, and these students should feel proud that they are ready to lead into the future.

Order of the Sword & Shield Induction

On Friday, April 28th, the School of Management held our second annual induction for our Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM) students into the Order of the Sword & Shield National Honor Society.  These students met the rigorous academic requirements for induction into the only honor society tailored to students in the homeland security and emergency management fields.

The new inductees were welcomed into the society by previous inductees, Thomas Antal, Jason Fegurgur and Wally Murrell. This stellar accomplishment by our students is yet another example of how this nationally ranked HSEM program continues to grow and excel.

Marketing class helps businesses showcase tasty bites and beverages

rnb-team-2016

Local coffee roasters and cafés showed off their specialty items Friday, Nov. 18, at the 2016 Roast and Boast, an event organized by students in a University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Management marketing class.

For the fifth year, the School of Management partnered with Northrim Bank to host this community event, which featured music, baked goods, fresh pressed juices and plenty of hot beverages.

Students in the Principles of Marketing class helped organize and market the event, gaining organizational management, budgeting, team building and event-planning experience.

Aaron Cottle is a senior majoring in business administration and part of the student team who worked on the class project. “I am really grateful to have this opportunity to work on a solid community event,” said Cottle. “It is an ideal way for students to learn outside the classroom while networking and working with local businesses.”

Five businesses showcased their wares at the event: Go Wild Superfood Café and Juicery, Great Harvest Bread Co., Little Owl Café, North Pole Coffee Roasting Co. and Sipping Streams Tea Co. All participants donated homemade baked goods or gift certificates for the door prizes. The grand prize was a Viper remote start system from Street Sounds.
