During the third annual Sport Sales Summit at CWU Des-Moines, sales representatives from the Seattle Mariners, Seattle Storm, Seattle Sounders FC, Brooks Running, and Mission Ridge Ski area presented to over 60 students, faculty, staff and community members. A panel of NWCSB alumni ended the day sharing their advice. During the third annual CWU Mariners Night, more than 400 students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends turned out for the Mariners vs. Cleveland Indians game. As part of their spring sport marketing course, students received sales training from the Mariners and took to the phones to tell alumni about the event. Every ticket sale supported the NWCSB. Through the NWCSB students have the opportunity to meet industry professionals, have internship and job shadowing opportunities, and explore various segments of the sport business industry.</h4><h4 style="text-align: center;">To learn more about what the College of Business has to offer, read our College of Business Beacon Magazine !<br>http://www.cwu.edu/business/beacon-magazine</h4></p style="text-align: center;"></h4 style="text-align: center;"></h4 style="text-align: center;"></br>Top-Rated University in the State http://www.cwu.edu/business/node/3152Tue, 16 Aug 2016 11:16:06<h3><br><img alt="" src="/business/sites/cts.cwu.edu.business/files/images/Top-rated%20University.jpg" style="width: 515px; height: 628px;"></h3><h4 style="text-align: center;">CWU is the top-rated university in the state in a new ranking system that measures economic impact on graduates, according to The Economist magazine. The magazines first-ever college rankings graded four-year, non-vocational American colleges by alumni earnings above expectation. The purpose of the study was to determine which colleges deliver the greatest return. CWU placed first in Washington with its alumni making on average $4,567 more than their expected earnings. It placed 124th out of all 1,275 public and private institutions included in the rankings. The Economist used a formula that anticipates earnings based on factors such as wealth of the state in which the school is located and prevailing local wages. It also considers students receiving Pell grants, family income, SAT scores, demographics, school size, and whether the institution is a liberal arts college.</h4><h4 style="text-align: center;">Learn more about CWU's College Ranking and more by reading our 2016 Beacon! http://www.cwu.edu/business/beacon-magazine</h4></br></h4 style="text-align: center;"></h4 style="text-align: center;">Management Training Session from Dr. Erica Holley http://www.cwu.edu/business/node/3151Tue, 16 Aug 2016 10:51:36<div><img alt="" src="/business/sites/cts.cwu.edu.business/files/images/CWU%20Business%20Dr.%20Erica%20Holley%202.jpg" style="width: 515px; height: 277px;"></div><p><span style="display: none;">&nbsp;</span></p><h4 style="text-align: center;">Last week, Management professor Dr. Erica Holley held a training session for CWU Staff about improving employee motivation and how to spot and prevent employee burnout by improving their knowledge of motivation strategies and theories.
