The Falls School of Business at Anderson University plans to send students and professors to Tokyo, Japan this spring in the first international trip to Asia offered by the FSB. The trip will take place during the university’s spring break, which is scheduled for the week of March 15.
Three Anderson University professors and twelve students spent part of the school’s winter break exploring and learning more about the business world. However, these students didn’t learn about business from a classroom on campus. Sponsored by the Falls School of Business, the group traveled to Paris, France and Bern, Switzerland to explore their business education in a nontraditional setting. Included on the trip was a four hour-long tour of the Nestle Development Plant in Konolfingen, Switzerland.
Falls School of Business (FSB) graduate Melissa Humerickhouse is using the skills she acquired in the FSB’s undergraduate (BA 2002) and Master’s of Accounting program to perform important work in the country of Iraq. Humerickhouse is employed by the Department of Defense Inspector General (DoDIG) and is performing military audits through the office during her six month stay in the country.
Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) will again be offered at Anderson University through the Falls School of Business during tax season. This ongoing ministry of the Falls School of Business has been offered over 25 years to students and low-income taxpayers in the Madison County area. AU Accounting students under the supervision of Professor Cindy Peck will complete your tax return at no cost to you.
