As the year comes to a close, it is important to review our proud moments throughout 2010. We continued to advance our leadership position in global business while providing new learning opportunities in entrepreneurship and sustainable business practices.
Donna Davisson, Instructor of International Business & Marketing and Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP), has recently passed an exam to earn the title of Licensed Customs Broker. Achieving this title is quite an honor, but even more so in her case, she earned a very impressive 84% on her first attempt. Statistics show that only 5% of the people who take the exam pass it on their first attempt. In addition, the average passage rate for the last 20 years on this exam is 14% and for her particular exam the passage rate was 11%.
Donna hopes to make CSU a place to offer a preparation class assisting students in passing the exam. Currently there are no schools in the area that offer such a class.
Customs brokers work with companies who import and export merchandise to ensure that Federal requirements are met. They are regulated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.We at the Nance College of Business would like to congratulate her for a job well done.

At the recently concluded Cleveland Clinic Solutions Case Competition, students representing the Nance College of Business at CSU walked away with cash scholarships for their outstanding performances.
Taking first place was a team comprised of CSU undergraduate Chad Lee and two MBA students from CWRU. In second place were Nance MBA students Rozann De Freitas and Adeniyi Abdul along with a student from Tri-C. Each team also had one high school student who was there to shadow and learn from the experience.
For the past four years, the Cleveland Clinic has held this case competition whereby students from various universities within Northeast Ohio come together for a “think-tank” session. At this event, the students are given the opportunity to showcase their talent in developing creative ideas, which could eventually be put into practice at the Cleveland Clinic. In addition, students gain experience in presenting in front of company executives and they are given a wonderful opportunity to network with other students, members of various professional associations, and Cleveland Clinic employees of all levels.
This year’s case sought to explore the role of social media in the health care industry. Students were given the task of developing ideas on how the Clinic could engage their current members as well as grow their social networks.

Thanks to the student organization called Student Advocates for a Vegetarian Ethic (SAVE), a number of turkeys were spared during the last Thanksgiving holiday. They recently hosted a “Vegetarian Thanksgiving Feast” on November 12th which was a huge success judging by the number of students who turned up, coupled with their feedback of the event. A non-vegetarian student who attended the feast said, “I was quite impressed by the wide array of food that was offered, and everything tasted really good”. Over 150 students gathered in the student center ballroom and were treated with lots of vegetarian dishes, a live DJ, a stand-up comic, and many chances to win prizes through a raffle.
According to SAVE, their primary purpose is to educate people on the health benefits of a non-meat diet, and the cruel treatment of factory farm animals.
