Smithfield, R.I. (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
For the fourth time in five years, Bryant University's Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO) has been named the best chapter in the country. The announcement was made Oct. 29 at the CEO national convention in Fort Worth, Texas.
The award to Bryant, where entrepreneurship was the No. 1 declared major among incoming students this past fall, recognizes the outstanding tools, workshops, guest speakers and hands-on learning activities the chapter has sponsored in the past year.
The mission of CEO is to inform, support and inspire members of its 230 chapters throughout North America to be entrepreneurial and seek opportunity through enterprise creation. Some of Bryant CEO's standout events, programs and achievements include:
The string of national awards won by Bryant CEO along with regional awards won by Bryant's chapter of Students in Free Enterprise contribute to the University's growing recognition as a campus that nurtures entrepreneurs. At a recent Bryant open house for high school students, "there were many students asking about entrepreneurship. They all seemed very impressed that Bryant CEO has won the national competition repeatedly in the past few years," said Associate Prof. Christopher Roethlein, chair of Bryant's Department of Management.
