Members of the University of La Verne’s Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) team won their regional competition in Hollywood, CA on Thursday April 5.
The winning team, lead by Associate Professor of Management, Issam Ghazzawi, and Professor of Law, Kevin Marshall, also received the 4.0 Club award, which recognizes quality educational programs, success in SIFE and long-term sustainability to improve the quality of life and standard of living for others during the 2011-2012 academic year.
Thirty top colleges and universities that participated in the Hollywood regional competition were primarily from the West Coast.
The next move for La Verne’s SIFE team is to join other regional winners for the SIFE National Exhibition in Kansas City, MO May 22-24, 2012. The winning team from the national contest will represent the United States at the SIFE World Cup.
This is the second year in a row La Verne’s SIFE team has won its regional competition. Last year the team advanced to the national competition and traveled to Minneapolis, MN for the 2011 SIFE USA National Exposition.
