Business students win in international competition

Two student teams from the Craig School of Business at California State University, Fresno were winners in the 42nd annual International Collegiate Business Strategy Competition in San Diego on April 6-8. Both teams were awarded trophies in the “Outstanding Reports” category.

Team members competed as management executives of businesses in a computerized simulation of business operations within a highly competitive environment. More than just a game, the activity is an intensive test of managerial capabilities of the participants.

The undergraduate team, which created a company called Red Star, consisted of Max Anfilofyev, chief executive officer; Leo Jaime, chief financial officer; Rebecca Wilson, vice president of operations; Brooke Swanson, vice president of marketing; and Rudy Lucio, executive assistant of marketing.

The MBA team, which created a company called Orbis, consisted of Jennifer Cedar, CEO; Chay Thao, chief operations officer; Hector Gonzalez, chief marketing officer; and Mark Riley, CFO.
