While the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University will never be able to make basketball headlines, the school has just been through its own March Madness. The school fielded two teams that went beyond the “Sweet 16” to claim an international championship.
The school is celebrating the success of two student teams that have claimed first and second place in a competition sponsored by the Association for Information Systems that drew students from 28 universities and three countries.
Huntsman students Allan Follett, Conner Sorenson and Chad Williams took first place in a contest that required them to create a video about information systems. Their production focused on explaining what the phrase “big data” means and why students who study in this area have increased job opportunities.
