Three University of Alabama students in the Culverhouse College of Commerce were recognized as ambassadors at the SAS Global Forum 2017 in April in Orlando, Florida. A fourth is a student scholarship winner.
The SAS Student Ambassador program is a competition designed to recognize students using SAS software to benefit their respective fields of study. SAS provides business analytics software to corporations. In the competition, students submit a data project they completed; SAS judges select those for presentation at the conference. Students receive free travel and lodging at the conference.
The ambassadors from UA are: Huan Li, Taylor Larkin and Caroline Bell. In addition, Alexandra DeKinder is a student scholarship winner.
Their faculty mentor is Dr. Denise McManus, professor of management information systems and director of UA's Institute of Business Analytics.
