About 64 University of Houston Victoria BBA students participated in the Fall 2011 BBA Conference held at the University of Houston System-Sugar Land campus on Saturday, November 19, 2011.
The BBA Conference, which was held for the first time in Spring 2007, is the culmination of the BBA program. Students enrolled in Strategic Management, the capstone course of the program, attend the event, which includes a luncheon in their honor. The BBA Conference provides students with the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the BBA program to real-world business situations. Students participating in the competition this semester prepared original business case analyses on Best Buy.
UHV School of Business Administration faculty and BBA program alumni served as panelists for the case competition. The student presentations are evaluated on several criteria, including purpose and organization, subject knowledge, use of multimedia, elocution, and graphic/visual design. Previous participants report that the case preparation and presentation experience and the chance to interact with faculty and fellow students make this event worthwhile.
The top ranking BBA students for the Fall 2011 BBA Conference were David E Brown and Olufemi George. They will each receive an individual certificate recognizing this accomplishment, and their names will appear on a perpetual plaque in the UHV School of Business Administration office. Both will be invited to serve as a panelist at future case competitions.
Past BBA Conference winners include Nayla Hoak in Spring 2011, David McGeehon in Fall 2010, Dallas Higgs in Spring 2010, Marilyn Jendrusch in Fall 2009, Steven Hasty and Ashley Trevino in Spring 2009, Brianne Masculine in Fall 2008, Christina Anderson and Stephanie Grace in Spring 2008, Alfred Baca in Fall 2007, and Thomas Brogan in Spring 2007.
