LIM College SIFE Team Advances to Semi-Finals in National Competition

5/14/2010

Best showing in LIM College SIFE team's history

The LIM College Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team met with success at SIFE's National Expo in Minneapolis on May 11-13.  The SIFE team, for the first time in LIM College history, won their league competition and advanced to the semi-finals. The LIM College team was one of only 20 SIFE teams across the nation to attain this honor.

SIFE works with teams of college students on campuses around the world to teach ethical and socially conscious business practices.  LIM College SIFE has sought to improve the lives of individuals through service-oriented business projects. This year, SIFE completed seven projects, including providing job search training for women in need, coaching local entrepreneurs in merchandising for a small children’s boutique, and helping a young entrepreneur and LIM College alumna grow her business in manufacturing eco-friendly accessories in Guatemala. 

The following students comprised the LIM College SIFE team in Minneapolis:

Tyler Emerson
Jenna Igneri
Katie Lemay
Patrick Mays
Dasha (Darya) Mishina
Samantha Rego
Melanie Stieglitz

SIFE also develops in its members academic excellence and professional achievement, qualities that are abundantly evident among the LIM College SIFE students. All senior members of the team received job offers from their Senior Co-op internship employers.  

The success of these students would not be possible without the perseverance and vision of the LIM College SIFE Advisor, Professor Marla Greene, who, with the help of Professors Charles Fradella and Mary Ann Dray, coached the SIFE team to new heights this year.
