Business. Dignity. Ending poverty.
This was the focus of the Partners Worldwide Marketplace Revolution conference in November. Over the course of two days, eight junior and senior business students attended several group sessions and workshops to learn about the work of Christian business people around the world.
The business department has received a $ 50,000 2012 NetVUE Program Development Grant, which will be used to strengthen the focus on vocational calling and to develop a more integrated approach to the study and realization of vocational opportunities for students.
As part of their experiential learning this semester, upper-level business students have been presenting to a panel composed of members of SCORE, the Trinity Business Network, and other professionals in the areas of marketing, training, consulting, higher education leadership, business ownership, and web marketing. The panel is helping the students as they make hands-on decisions for various local businesses that are partnering with the class for this project.
After missing each other by a few years as students at Trinity, Matt Steigenga ’92 and Steve Cooper ex ’86 eventually ended up being not only fellow alumni but brothers-in-law and business partners.
