Ashley Honl, a senior majoring in accounting, and her fellow team members won their case category during the Team Case Competition at the Beta Gamma Sigma 2017 Global Leadership Summit. The event was held in Orlando, Florida, Nov. 2-5.
The team was selected as a winner based on their innovative and creative solution for their assigned business case and the effectiveness of their presentation.
“There were others on my team from all over the world,” said Honl, a Fargo native. “I loved the opportunity to represent NDSU.”
Beta Gamma Sigma is the international honor society for business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student can receive in a business program accredited by AACSB International.
During the summit, members gain leadership skills while building relationships with colleagues from chapters around the world.
“We had a lot of great sessions of speakers that showed us how to take the leadership qualities that we already have and apply them to our daily life,” said Honl. “It was an amazing opportunity to be able to travel across the country by myself, experience and interact with my peers, and to learn more about myself as a leader and person.”
In the competition, 35 teams of business students collaborated to provide solutions to a complex business scenario. Each team presented to a panel of judges and the five category winning teams showcased their business solutions to summit attendees.
