BTA Students Attend AITP-NCC
Twelve Tippie undergraduate students—Cody Kehl, Megan Moran, Caitlin Bruggeman, Renxuan Xiao, Karly Holland, Mallory Brandt, Ben Ransdell, Scot Alzheimer, Dalton Friedhoff, Alex Staroselsky, J.T. Sandbulte, Dan Senter—participated in this year's Association of Information Technology's annual National Collegiate Conference (AITP-NCC), April 4-6, 2013, in St. Louis, Mo. More than 500 students competed in 12 technical competitions at the conference.
Six of the 12 Tippie students received recognition. Dan Senter and J.T. Sandbulte's team received Honorable Mention in the Network Design Competition; and two teams in the Business Analytics Competition also received Honorable Mention—Karly Holland and Renxuan Xiao, and Caitlin Bruggeman and Dalton Friedhoff. All four students are currently enrolled in the new Business Intelligence course, which is part of the new Business Analytics and Information Systems major to start this fall.
In addition, Yvonne Galusha, lecturer in management sciences and faculty advisor for the Business Technology Association student organization, received a trophy and Samsung Galaxy tablet for receiving the highest faculty score on the Institute for the Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP) certification exams, which she took "cold" at the conference. Galusha took the exams, so she could better advise students about the tests.
All attendees accomplished a good showing for Tippie.
