Anderson University students and alumni were among top placements in the 2014 Taylor University Business Plan competition. Adam Hoeksema (AU MBA student and Micro Loan Director at the Flagship Enterprise Center) was part of a team winning first place with a $7,000 prize. AU MBA graduate Eric Baker and current residential MBA student Ashley Ledford placed third and won $2,000.

A recent study of 2012 graduates of the Falls School of Business found that 96% of the students are either employed in their field of study or in graduate school. This high placement rate was consistent between all the majors in the Falls School of Business.  Our graduates are dong well in the job market and in graduate school placement.

The newly created social media class at Anderson University (BSNS 3600-04) won a 2011 Best of Show award from the Hoosier Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) for their efforts in promoting the summer Falls School of Business entrepreneurship camp for high school students. This is the second year the PRSA has offered a student category and awards were given in two areas: projects, and programs.
