Students Compete in Accenture IT Innovation Competition

Dec. 4, 2015

BUSINESS STUDENTS COMPLETE IN ACCENTURE COMPETITION

For the 8th year in a row Baylor Business students competed in Accenture’s Information Technology Innovation Competition. Accenture consultants Luke Beazley, Bren Doreck, Dane Harris and Julie Munn-Sums worked with the students throughout the semester to help them with their projects.

Dr. Hope Koch said: “Every project was a great idea and I wish the students luck as they make them a reality. Many of the projects addressed things Baylor can do better such as helping students find campus jobs, find tutors and secure football tickets."
