A Short Video History of the Scott College of Business...
Brandon Nettrouer, an insurance and risk management major from South Whitley, was excited to learn he was a finalist prior to the ceremony and knew he had won when a Gongaware Scholar was mentioned.
"There was a lot of hard work, a lot of sacrifice to achieve that honor, so it really meant a lot for me right then and there-and it hit me very hard. It was tough to keep my composure because at that moment, as I'm sitting there, my mind was racing, my closest fraternity brothers were patting me on the shoulder, friends were looking over at me, and it overloaded me with pure happiness." said Nettrouer.

Indiana State University's business degree programs have earned continued accreditation. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business announced this month that the Scott College has maintained its accreditation. Indiana State's business programs first earned the recognition in 1980 and have continuously maintained accreditation for more than 30 years.
"The AACSB is the gold standard for business accreditation," said Brien Smith, dean of the Scott College. "Only 5 percent of business schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB. To remain accredited is challenging and AACSB presents a high standard. The hard work and commitment is well worth it."
It was a birthday celebration to remember for hundreds of supporters, faculty and students of the Scott College of Business who, on Friday, honored the college's past accomplishments and celebrated the bright future ahead.
"Life is easier when you are part of a network of friends and family, and our network has been significant. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, emeriti, community members, industry partners and others have made our college successful and impactful," Brien Smith, dean of the Scott College of Business, said at a 50th anniversary event. "Since that golden year - 1964-65 - we've prepared generations of students for the role of work, but more importantly, we've prepared them to be strong leaders."
