A campus bathroom rating system, a parking spot finder, a GPA calculator and a recipe generator based on the ingredients in your kitchen will be among the mobile apps on display at the second annual Argy Bargy showcase at Creighton University on Thursday afternoon.
The apps were created by Creighton business students who took a business application development course this semester.
Six students from half a dozen area high schools went to college for a weekend when Creighton hosted the first annual “Jumpstart” November 16 and 17.
The nation’s largest student-led business symposium just got bigger. The 2013 Creighton Business Symposium, held at the CenturyLink Center on November 15, saw a total attendance of more than 650 participants.
Of those, 350 were Heider College of Business students. That’s over half of the college, says Joe Larson, the senior accounting major who co-chaired the planning team of 10 with fellow senior finance and business intelligence and analytics major Nermina Demirovic.
The planning committee sought to increase the freshman class presence and succeeded. A majority of the class of 2017 attended. So did roughly 60 university administrators, faculty and staff; 175 business professionals and alumni; and 67 high school students.
I am what you call a “sports enthusiast,” especially when it comes to college basketball. Creighton University recently joined the BIG EAST athletic conference, and all of us at Creighton are eagerly anticipating an exciting season of high-level competition. Good teams are made even better by high-level competition.
As dean of Creighton’s Heider College of Business, I am struck by the similarities between the success of an athletic team, and the success of an academic college of business.
Declaring an experience to be “life-changing” may be hyperbolic, but that is what the summer internship with the GE Healthcare IT Leadership Program was for three Heider College of Business students.
