Towson Enactus, a Towson University student organization focused on social impact, placed second at the sixth annual Business Ethics Case Competition held at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Md., earlier this March.
College of Business and Economics students Gerald Avery, Sandrine Emambu, Winta Tedros and Biruk Lulseged represented the Towson Enactus group at the event. The team competed against four other universities, including Mount St. Mary’s, and gave presentations on an ethical dilemma involving outsourcing. The students won $200 for placing second.
Judges said the Towson team’s presentation was “organized and presented in a creative way,” with a “compelling recommendation.”
Formally known as SIFE, Enactus is a global community of student, academic and business leaders focused on societal advancement through entrepreneurial community projects. The Towson Enactus group is open to all Towson University students, not just business majors, and is currently seeking new members to get engaged.
