Talented USUE students place in PBL competitions


A Utah State University Eastern student placed first in personal finance at the annual Phi Beta Lambda Conference hosted by Snow College Richfield on March 31-April 1 with its adviser named PBL Adviser of the Year by its Board of Directors.
By placing first in personal finance, Deana Ceal of Castle Dale, qualifies to complete in the National PBL Competition in Anaheim, Calif., in June 2017. She also placed third in entrepreneurship concepts and macro economics.
Veteran business associate professor, Henning Olsen, Ed.D., received the highest adviser award after being named Adviser of the Year during the two-day competition.
The team of Eric Wright of Price and Christian Biese from the Congo, Africa, placed fourth in business presentations while Wright also placed fifth in public speaking.
Olsen likes taking his students to PBL competitions because, “The PBL competition give students an opportunity to build confidence and network with business students from other Utah colleges and universities.”
