Business Management Seniors Raise Over $1000 for an Incoming Freshman Scholarship

On July 12th and July 24th 2014 Business Management students with the help of the Wentworth Association of managers held two fundraisers, one a tournament and the other was selling cotton candy. This two-part fundraiser was inspired as part of one of Professor Cindy Stevens’ technology project management courses. In an effort to support Wentworth’s EPIC initiatives Professor Stevens encourages students to focus entirely on project based approaches to class material. One group in her class took on this project of establishing a fundraiser to begin a scholarship. These students were able to organize this fundraiser, acquire sponsors and promote this fundraiser within the community. They did this all while completing their project management course and adhering to project management guidelines.
