Brian Broom-Peltz, a junior Chemical Engineering major, was one of the program's inaugural students. As a result of his skill in Microsoft Excel, and taking INFO 1010, Brian was selected to represent the United States in the Microsoft Office Specialist Worldwide Competition in the 2010 Excel category. In August 2011, Brian placed 7th overall against competitors from more than 50 countries; and, he was chosen from a group of more than 72,000 students who competed leading up to the world championships. Brian mentions of his experience in the Business Minor Summer Institute:
"My mind is a house. The spring semester before the summer business minor program felt like I was adding a pool, tennis court, and replacing the roof of my mental mansion. After I participated in the first summer minor program at Tulane University, I felt as if I had added new furniture and painted the walls of a room I have always been looking to polish up: my office.
The sincerity, competence, and coordination of the professors and directors makes this business boot camp more than worth the investment. I ended the summer with an excellent foundation in the essentials of business planning, communication, and management that I have the rest of my professional career to hone and perfect.
I would highly recommend the summer business minor to any student considering adding a practical minor to their CV and who is willing to put in the work to earn that achievement." -Brian Broom-Peltz, class of 2013.
Annie Diebold, a Science and Engineering graduate of 2010, earned a major in Cell and Molecular Biology and a minor in Business from Tulane University. She was offered a job as a Research Associate with the LSU Health Sciences Center, a job that is not typically offered to new college graduates, because of her minor in business.
"Since I didn't have much room in my schedule, my business minor was a great option to help me diversify my studies. It allowed me the opportunity to get some experience on the business end of things, and ultimately gave me the one up I needed to get my job." -Annie Diebold, 2010
