In International Marketing, Zachary Dowell and Corissa Grundman placed fourth in the nation, and the team of Trisha Besse and Jill Drazkowski took home top honors in the Business Ethics Event, making it the second year in a row that the La Crosse Chapter has taken first place at Internationals in Business Ethics.
