Physics major Phillipe Rodriguez won four business leadership awards at the State Business Leadership Conference, presented by California Phi Beta Lambda, a professional business organization dedicated to providing college students with a way to gain useful skills for their careers.
The CSUF chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, with students from throughout the campus, brought home 44 medals and seven awards from the March 27-29 conference. Phi Beta Lambda members competed against college students from across the state, including UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC and UC Riverside, and now have the opportunity to represent their chapter at the National Leadership Conference in Chicago in June.
Rodriguez, a junior in the Dan Black Physics-Business Program, won first place in financial concepts, second in project management, fourth in client service and fifth in entrepreneurship concepts. Co-president of the Physics Club and vice president of the Sigma Upsilon Mu entrepreneurship fraternity, he will go to Washington, D.C., this summer for an internship with the Cal State DC Scholars Program. “Because of the Dan Black Physics-Business Program, I’ve been able to build up my leadership and business skills,” he said.
