Dr. Jorg Bley, Dean of SBA, praised the students' hard work and said, "I am very happy to hear that we have yet again showcased our students' outstanding capabilities. It is amazing what they can do with the guidance of highly qualified and committed faculty."
"Once again this year, our students were honored for their talent. This recognition is evidence of the high quality of students and faculty at SBA," said Dr. Anis Samet, Associate Professor of Finance at AUS who coached the students.
