The waters were churning and the sharks were circling, but Sacred Heart University’s freshmen business students were well prepared to defend themselves from any attacks. And stay intact and afloat they did after presenting their creative business concepts recently in SHU’s Fall Business Plan Competition. Staged like the popular “Shark Tank” TV series, the challenge pitted teams against one another as they presented their plans to panels of judges selected from the regional business community.
Sacred Heart University students recently competed in a challenge put on by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York that is known nationwide as the College Fed Challenge. The competition provides an opportunity for college students to demonstrate their understanding of macroeconomics, monetary policy and the Fed's role. The New York Fed calls students' participation their "most important achievement."
Sacred Heart University will enter into an agreement with Verizon and Alley, for the creation, management and operation of an innovative coworking space at SHU's West Campus, formerly corporate headquarters for General Electric, in Fairfield, Conn. This new partnership, called Alley powered by Verizon, will be the first in Connecticut and the first time Alley powered by Verizon is located on a college campus.
