  • College of Business students showcase their global business knowledge in a national competition.

On November 8, 2009, UC's team of three College of Business students ? Alex Glutz, Stephen Newland and Charles Rinehart ? was awarded 5th place at the Nationwide Fisher Biz Quiz competition at the Ohio State University. Teams from universities and colleges across the United States traveled to Columbus to participate in the competition, which is designed to showcase the business acumen of the nation's top undergraduate business students.

UC team members are business honors students in the Kolodzik Business Scholars and Lindner Honors-PLUS programs. Glutz, Newland and Rinehart have further developed their business skills through study abroad experiences, leadership roles on campus and professional co-op positions. John Glascock, West Shell Professor of Real Estate Finance and director of the UC Real Estate Center, served as the team's faculty advisor.

The annual Biz Quiz competition asks student teams questions from articles appearing in The Wall Street Journal six weeks prior to the event. The competition includes individual rounds, team preliminary rounds, team semifinals and the grand finale. The successful teams and individuals receive financial awards as well as the opportunity to interview for summer internships with Nationwide's Finance Leadership Rotation Program.
