A team of four Frostburg State University management students received second place in a case competition at the 2008 International Conference of the Society for Advancement of Management (SAM). On April 4, Josh Wolf, Marjie Gray, Krissy Dix and Chris Borleis competed against 33 teams from different universities nationwide and defended their analysis of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts to a panel of judges.
FSU Professors Amit Shah and Mike Monahan advise the FSU SAM student chapter, which spent time researching, analyzing, preparing and practicing their study for over 10 weeks. According to Shah, the Frostburg State University team won the second-place trophy competing in the toughest division at the conference.
Shah says that the presentation will be made into a DVD and will be distributed to all SAM student chapters nationwide.
“These four stars have made us proud and brought such a wonderful name and fame to FSU,” Shah said.
