Federal Reserve Competition
Active learning is simply more effective than the traditional college experience of listening to lectures and reading textbooks! There is no better active learning opportunity than business competitions for college students. Molloy sponsors business students in competitions in the following areas:
Economics (The Fed Challenge)
Accounting (Becker Accounting Challenge)
Entrepreneurship (NY State Business Plan Competition)
Finance (Investment Research sponsored by NYSSA)
The winner of one of the Business Plan competitions said years later: "Standing up in front of business professionals and trying to convince them to give me money for something that does not currently exist was the most important skill I learned in college."
During the week of April 15, students and faculty from the Business Division of Molloy College attended the 18 Annual Euroweek Conference held this year at Hanze University in Groningen, Netherlands.
The European Week Conference is an annual international student conference whose overall purpose is to add value to current studies by exposing students to a diverse, multi-cultural teambuilding and knowledge-sharing environment in order to enhance their educational and international employment opportunities. For the past 17 years, participating schools have been able to stimulate practical exposure to current developments and emerging trends in the many areas of international business. Students develop valuable skills in data gathering, analysis, problem-solving, and drawing conclusions as well as presenting their projects in an international context.
The Conference this year was attended by approximately 175 students and 75 faculty & scholars from participating universities focusing discussion and research projects around the theme of fair trade and promoting sustainable business practices. Molloy College, Division of Business is the first and only participating university from the United States.
