Students Stephanie Bauer, Martin Concepcion, Liz Boylan, Saniya Khan, Cherie Ferber-Guy, Lauren Labita, Michelle Strack and Nick Wood, along with Meryl Rosenblatt, Kisha Chandler from the Business Department, and Cody Snapp from Student Media participated in the annual Euroweek Conference examining topics relating to Social Media in Business.
"Euroweek is a one-week competition that highlights a semester of research and planning by student teams from various countries. Molloy College is the only representative from the United States. During this past semester, our students teamed up with students from other countries, and worked cooperatively using Skype and other internet communications on 4 different research projects," said Professor Kathy Reba, Director of International Education at Molloy College. "The teams consisted of 6 students and a faculty mentor from 3 schools, and included not only research, but a presentation and a completed research paper."
This was Molloy's first try in the competition, and several students were among the winners.
