Business students and faculty in the spotlight

Our students and faculty are accomplishing great things. Below, you'll find some of their work and achievements. This page will be updated frequently as their accomplishments continue to roll in.

GAME Forum

Business students get in the GAME

What’s the name of the game? Getting hands-on experience that can translate into real-world success. Each year approximately 40 Quinnipiac business students play an integral role in organizing the annual GAME Forum, a three-day conference held in New York City that brings together the sharpest minds in the finance world. The engaging event — the largest of its kind in the world — attracts more than 1,200 students from 150 colleges and 50 countries who listen to more than 100 high-level speakers sound off on everything from investment strategies to the role of social media in the stock market. QU students, who act as hosts at the event, also have the chance to get up close and personal with these business superstars by participating in Q&A sessions, and attending breakout discussion panels and workshops on everything from investing to career development.

Shaping future business leaders

Our students believe that business acumen and an entrepreneurial spirit are instilled early on. On the Quinnipiac School of Business Community Service Day, they help mold the next generation of marketers, managers, investors and business leaders at Cook Hill School in Wallingford, Connecticut. 

Undergraduate and MBA students spend the day teaching elementary schoolers the business-related skills and collaborative problem solving they will one day need to be successful in any arena of life. The annual event is a collaboration with Junior Achievement, the world's largest organization dedicated to educating K-12 students about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.

“Cook Hill students look up to the college students with awe. It is a privilege and an honor to take part in this valuable experience.”
Kristine Friend
Principal of Cook Hill School

Brewing new ideas

Fulbright Scholars in the the School of Business hosted Cindi Bigelow, president and chief executive officer of Bigelow Tea, on campus to beta-test a new app, Time 4 Tea.

Student Spotlight

Fulbright scholars pitch tea app to Bigelow CEO

The whistle of the kettle was unmistakable: an invitation to sip some tea and spend some time with your thoughts or, even better, a good friend. Only this siren wasn’t shouting from a stovetop — it was coming from a new mobile app created by Fulbright Scholars at the School of Business.

The app, Time 4 Tea, was modeled recently for Bigelow Tea, the #1 specialty tea company in the U.S. The timer helps consumers brew a perfect cup of tea by matching the ideal seeping time for each blend.

As part of the app’s beta testing, Cindi Bigelow, the company’s president and chief executive officer, visited the Mount Carmel Campus for the first time to share her story and to steep a cup of Lemon Ginger tea.

The Time 4 Tea app was conceived by Tamara Leskovar, a Fulbright Scholar from Slovenia studying archaeology. After sipping yet another cup of bitter tea that had seeped too long, the avid tea drinker decided her palate deserved better.

Student Spotlight: Jacquline Waite '17

Accelerated student reaches new heights

In choosing to attend Quinnipiac, Computer Information System major Jacqueline Waite ‘17 found more than just the right school — she found a tight-knit community.

“I came to Quinnipiac because of its great academic programs and beautiful campuses,” said Waite, “but I stayed because of the people I met and the relationships I built here. From day one, I just felt comfortable everywhere on campus.”

Comfortable and confident, Waite wasted no time in getting involved. She joined the App Development Lab and Computer Information Systems Society, and participated in major events such our School of Business’ Global Asset Management Education Forum — the world’s largest student-run financial conference — and QTHON, which raised more than $216,000 this year for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. She also served as vice president of intellectual development for Alpha Chi Omega.

Waite’s most gratifying accomplishment, however, came with her induction into the Beta Sigma Gamma business honor’s society.

Students meet industry leaders, experience new cultures

A Quinnipiac education takes our students to some of the most intriguing and inspiring places — from around the corner to around the world. Studying and working outside the classroom challenges our students and changes them. The experiences make them more confident, more independent and better prepared for whatever profession they choose to pursue.

Our students have traveled to and studied in dozens of countries throughout the past year — including Peru.

On that School of Business trip, students explored natural and historic wonders — including Machu Picchu — while indulging in local traditions and food.
