It’s longstanding tradition within the College of Business Administration that each academic year end with a celebration known as Recognition Night, or CBARN for short, to highlight outstanding club and individual achievements.

The 2015-2016 rendition of CBARN--hosted by the United Business Student Senate--took place at the Kellogg West Conference Center with representatives from 20 different CBA student organizations gathering for dinner.

Topping the list of winners was the Latino Business Students’ Association that was awarded Superior Merit, Most Profitable and had the Club President of the Year (Jasmine Moreno) along with UBSS Representative of the Year in Omar Hernandez.

In its first year, new philanthropy club WAVES with its motto of, “In the Business of Giving Back,” was recognized with Superior Merit, Most Philanthropic and Outstanding Newcomer.

Among the individual awards, Management and Human Resources professor (Steve) Xuguang Guo was announced as MHR Faculty of the Year. In addition to teaching, Guo also coached a group of students to victory at the Western Region SHRM Case Study Competition.

On the student side, Alberto Rodriguez-Garcia was acknowledged as Student of the Year for International Business. Rodriguez-Garcia had perfect grades in all CBA classes in addition to serving on the executive board for two clubs, co-founding WAVES and business start-up Poly Probiotics. He’s now working full-time at Google as a finance associate.
