MBA team takes 1st place in Poole Leadership Showcase
Kudos to 2nd year NC State Jenkins MBAs Caroline Chamblee Lewis and Mike Westrich for winning first place in the Poole College of Management leadership showcase earlier this week. Caroline and Mike project came from their Product Innovation Lab class last fall. Working with students from the Colleges of Design and Engineering, they developed a personal health monitoring device for Chronc Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The device provides comfortable, continual monitoring along with automatic alerts to medical personnel if needed. Another great example of MBA students learning by working on real world research projects.
