Beacom Student Organization Chapter Achieves Prestigious Recognition
The designation is the highest honor an FMA chapter can receive, and the Beacom chapter of FMA is one of 21 to receive the award in 2018. FMA has more than 175 active student chapters and fewer than 10 percent receive the Superior Chapter designation.
“This distinguished recognition reaffirms our standing as a national leader in business education. FMA is a premier student organization in the Beacom School of Business as evidenced by the engaging professionals, dedicated alumni, and professional activities they involve in their annual activities,” stated Venky Venkatachalam, Ph.D., dean of the Beacom School of Business.
The Beacom FMA chapter received the Superior Chapter award for strong membership numbers, hosting numerous professional development speakers on campus, and conducting a professional and corporate tour to the San Francisco Bay Area, including visits to Wells Fargo, Tesla, and Airbnb.
“The student members worked very hard to accomplish the required tasks to earn the Superior Chapter Award for the fourth consecutive year,” commented Yewmun Yip, Ph.D., associate professor of finance and one of the faculty advisors of the chapter.
