This report will show you how we have made these areas a focus for success. Sincerely,

Dr. Antoinette Phillips Interim Dean, College of Business


VISION & MISSION The College of Business at Southeastern Louisiana University will be recognized as a leading regional business school whose educational experiences, outreach, and knowledge creation positively impact lives and communities. The mission of the College of Business at Southeastern Louisiana University is to provide educational experiences for personal, professional and intellectual growth, enable the creation and sharing of knowledge to enhance learning and to advance the practice of business, and engage communities through service to positively impact their future.


REAL WORLD READY INITIATIVES Southeastern’s Quality Enhancement Plan describes a course of action for enhancing quality education. The current focus is Real-World Ready initiatives. Experiential learning provides opportunities for students to practice in a setting that is authentic to advancing their intended careers. These learning opportunities are current, pertinent, performance-based, practical applications of knowledge and skills experienced within the curriculum. Experiential learning falls into categories in the College of Business including: internships, service-learning, undergraduate research, civic engagements, study abroad, field experiences, creative activities, practice, hands-on learning, mentoring, leadership training, and apprenticeships.


Study Abroad Opportunities • • •

Study abroad adds an invaluable dimension to a student’s academic, cultural, and professional development, and provides advantages in an increasingly competitive job market. First hand experience in other countries and cultures allows a clearer understanding of individuals, their own society and culture’s place in the global community. The College of Business is fortunate to have two programs that travel to Costa Rica and Panama where we have strong relationships with business, industry and governmental leaders in those countries.

Real World Ready Courses This year was the first year Southeastern implemented Real World Ready Certified courses through grant funding. In the College of Business, there were three courses certified: • Finance 495: Special Topics (Community Bank Competition) with Danielle Lewis • Marketing 373: Social Media & Digital Marketing (Student Groups worked with Community Clients) with April Kemp • Marketing 444: Marketing Management (Client was First Guaranty Bank) with Wesley Pollitte

Internships Students have many opportunities to gain real-world experience before entering the workforce. Internships are managed by each discipline within the College of Business. • Joseph Morris (Accounting) • John Cresson (Finance) • Jen Morgan (Business Administration) • Rusty Juban (Management) • Robert Cope (Supply Chain Management) • April Kemp (Marketing)

FOCUS ON STUDENT SUCCESS Student success in the classroom was enhanced through real-world ready projects and relationships outside of the classroom. Several faculty members helped connect students with companies and professionals in the community to relate coursework to hands-on learning opportunities.

The Finance Investment Analysis classes, taught by John Cresson, engaged in the management of the Heyward Gibbes Hill Scholarship Fund, with assets valued at over $1.3 million. Students used state-of-the-art Bloomberg professional technology to conduct market research. Working with mentors from the investment industry, students competed to be able to make buy and sell decisions for over $600,000 in securities. Mentors included R.K. Hoddinott, Janice Leaumont, Lucius McGehee, Andre Theriot, and Tony Volz. (Pictured above are the students and mentors after presentations)


IN AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM

The Advanced Advertising class, taught by Teri Root, worked with one of the Communications classes to design and produce commercials for North Cypress Fitness. Students consulted with their clients and created several storyline options for the client to choose from after final productions were completed. (Pictured above are the students and clients viewing the final versions of the commercials) Students in April Kemp’s Digital and Social Media course worked with clients in the community to make website recommendations, create e-mail marketing campaigns and execute social media content calendars. Some of the clients this year included: Jay Artigues Sport Complex, Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro, Berry Town Produce, Mele Printing, and Eddie’s Frozen Custard. The class also managed the College of Business Facebook page. The able to increase the number of likes from 1,064 to 2,173 over the course of the academic year, which was an increase of over 100%. Mrs. Kemp’s Public Relations class worked with clients to develop a public relations campaign and event plan. Some of the clients included: Southeastern’s Sustainability Center, PJ’s Coffee, and Ruby Boutique. One client was the New Orleans Pelicans where the students planned and executed a Southeastern night at one of their games.

The Marketing Management class presented a mobile banking marketing plan to First Guaranty Bank (FGB) for their final project. They conducted research all semester and worked in teams to create and present the marketing plan to the client. “I was very impressed with the students and enjoyed working with them,” said Ms. Desiree Simmons, Vice President of Loan Administration and Marketing, FGB. (Pictured to the left are students with Ms. Simmons)


INCREASE IN STUDENT INTERNSHIPS

This year, the College of Business saw an increase in student internship opportunities. There were several events created to connect students and employers, including Networking Week, which is to be held each semester. Through these events, companies were able to set up on-campus interviews in Garrett Hall to hire students for internships and part-time jobs where they could gain real world industry experience.


MANAGEMENT 101 COURSE A recent initiative has been a Management 101 course to introduce Business Majors to the College of Business and its opportunities. The course has been taught this year by David Faucheux. David was ranked No. 2 in the nation for 2014-2015 in the popular student ranking service Rate My Professors. David is a teacher, instructor, life coach, mentor, sales trainer, motivational speaker, advertising consultant, and marketing project manager. He received his MBA from Southeastern and worked in advertising and marketing for 25 years. But, in 2012, he decided to give up that successful career so that he could follow his heart and pursue one of his true passions, which is to teach and to make a difference for our students. He retired to teach at Southeastern. He taught Marketing and Public Relations for 3 years, but currently is teaching Management 101 - Fundamentals of Business Success. He also serves as the Vice President of the Hammond Area Economic and Industrial Development District.


COLLEGE-WIDE EVENTS FOR ENGAGEMENT While each department sponsors several events throughout the year to support their majors, the College of Business hosts several additional events to engage all business majors with alumni, community leaders and industry professionals.

GROWTH BY THE NUMBERS


LATIN AMERICAN INITIATIVES Both the University and the College of Business value education that extends beyond the traditional classroom setting. Latin America is an important economic partner with the United States, and in particular with Louisiana. Southeastern’s College of Business has hosted programs for over twenty years in cooperation with several Latin American countries and has an especially strong relationship with those countries. The focus of the programs has spanned a wide range of areas from national economic development to study abroad and everything in between. In the most recent year alone, Southeastern’s business faculty have conducted on-campus or on-site programs with Columbia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, and the Republic of Panamá. These programs offer our students and faculty opportunities to broaden their cultural awareness and discover how the international environment impacts governmental and business decision-making.

HISPANIC BUSINESS INSTITUTE For more than 15 years, the College of Business has been working with the Latin American community through the Hispanic Business and Leadership Institute (HBLI) to offer programs designed to strengthen and invigorate entrepreneurial, participative and educative leadership capacities, as well as international relations.

Jose Barrios Ng is the former Deputy Administrator for the Panama Canal Authority and has been a strong partner with Southeastern’s College of Business’ Hispanic Business & Leadership Institute.


HISPANIC BUSINESS INSTITUTE (CONTINUED)

ASSOCIATION OF LATIN AMERICAN STUDENTS

Director: Aristides Baraya -By partnering with government agencies, universities, chambers of commerce, business leaders, and non-profit organizations in Louisiana and Latin America, HBLI has served as a catalyst to achieve many of advances in the region for the Hispanic community and also for Hispanic relations between the State of Louisiana and other Hispanic countries .-With The Institute of Business Excellence of the Chamber of Industry in Costa Rica, we have worked to develop and increase rural-business microenterprises capabilities. -With the State of Louisiana, worked to establish a direct flight between New Orleans and the Republic of Panamá with Copa Airlines. -Presented a one-week conference on Business and Marketing for the Monica Herrera School of Marketing and Communications from El Salvador. -Hosted International Transfer Students Program with University of El Salvador. -Hosted an Executive Trade Mission to Panamá with The Committee of 100 for Economic Development, Inc., the District Export Council, and the US Department of Commerce, Commercial Service Office in New Orleans to help participating companies and organizations foster new business and partnerships in Panamá.

Advisor of Association of Latin American Students: Aristides Baraya ALAS is a student organization designed to enhance the appreciation of diversity and cross-cultural awareness, leadership, ethics, and cohesiveness for the members as well as to build a better understanding between Latin American students and the local community. The ALAS has participated in numerous events aimed to underscore the importance of intercultural and international relationships by volunteering in programs such as the Panamá Bilingüe program and charity events to help and serve the community.

STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS N PANAMA & COSTA RICA Study Abroad Coordinators: Costa Rica: Michael Budden, Connie Budden and Rusty Juban Panama: Russell McKenzie, Tará Lopez Our study abroad programs give students the opportunity to authentically experience another culture. Because of our strong relationships in Latin America,

our current study abroad programs are focused in Panamá and Costa Rica. Throughout the experience, students engage with industry and political leaders, learn more about how culture and economic principles impact decisionmaking, and reflect on their own preconceived stereotypes of Latin American countries.

PANAMA BILINGUE PROGRAM Director of Panama Bilingüe Program: Tará Lopez The Panamá Bilingüe program, which began in January of 2015, is a project initiated by Republic of Panamá President, Juan Carlos Varela to develop Panamá into a fully bilingual country. His goal is to send 1,000 elementary and high school teachers per year, through the year 2019, to universities in the United States for one semester to study English. Because of our unique, long-standing relationship with Panamá, Southeastern’s College of Business was among the first recruited to host the program. Participating in this program has enriched our campus community.
