Student competition provides experiential learning

12.1.2016

Red Ventures held its first case competition at Wake Forest on November 4. Student teams assumed the role of a business development team by presenting their concepts to representatives from the digital marketing company. Juniors Sheryl He (’18), Iris Lin (’18), and Youyang Zhang (’18), along with sophomore Cecilia Hu (’19), received first place and $5,000. The second place team included School of Business students Emily Gunn (’18), Jack Mullally (’18), and Tommy Vater (’17), along with sophomore Terry Boucher (’19). They received $3,000. Each team named a charity to receive half the winnings and divided the remainder among team members. Wake Forest students’ abilities to communicate, collaborate, and maintain a strong work ethic are main reasons why Red Ventures continues to forge strong partnerships here, according to Ashley Taylor, a campus recruiter at Red Ventures.
