Pair of business teams make finals

The Utah Statesman 

Two teams of students from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business have been selected as finalists in an information systems competition that started with 82 teams from top universities from around the world. 

The Utah State University students will be going to Bentonville, Ark., to participate in the 2013 Walmart IT Summit and AIS Student Chapter Leadership Conference April 18-20. The Association of INformation Systems, the organization that is hosting the competition, is a professional group for individuals and organizations that lead the research, teaching, practice and study of information systems worldwide. 

There were 82 teams from 17 universities that entered the contest and just six different teams in each of four different categories made it to the finals. Only five universities, counting USU, managed to get more than one team to the championships. 

Members of both teams said they are excited for the opportunity to go to the convention hoping it will open up job opportunities for them.
