GOOGLE NAMES BAUER MBAS BEST IN AMERICAS IN ONLINE MARKETING CHALLENGE
Google announced recently that a team of four MBA students from the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston are the Americas champions of the 2013 Google Online Marketing Challenge.
The team, comprised of Bauer MBA students Heather Nguyen, Jason Ruth, Adam Jalfon and James McLellan, competed against 12,000 students from more than 80 countries to become the Americas Winner in the challenge, which allows college students to display their skills in advertising, ecommerce, integrated communication, management information systems, marketing and new media technologies. Bauer teams have competed in the challenge for the past four years, with the 2011 team taking the global title.
“To have a company like Google once again recognize the strength and aptitude of these Bauer MBA students is humbling,” Dean Latha Ramchand said. “We are so proud of their achievement and will continue to build curriculum around innovative and evolving aspects of the business world.”
