Cal Poly International Business Students Earn Global Recognition
SAN LUIS OBISPO – Two student teams from Cal Poly’s Orfalea College of Business recently placed in the top 100 in international business simulation competitions under the guidance of international business Professor J. Michael Geringer.
Seniors Ricky Rossman, Harold Strubberg and Allison Terpenny placed in the top 70 teams worldwide in the Business Strategy Game online competition. The competitors were to create and run a footwear company and compete in a global marketplace with companies run by other teams.
Students in Geringer’s Advanced Seminar in International Management class competed in the Glo-Bus online competition, a similar simulation in which teams are charged with running international digital camera companies. Undergraduates Ivy Subijano, Tony Toy and Skylar Urban, placed 42nd worldwide in the Return on Equity category.
