Supply chain management major Layla Koroleva, economics major Craig McFarland, and accounting majors Aaron Bailey and Jenna Kucmierz were top scorers among an approximate 17,000 business students from 300 business schools nationwide.
"This is truly an amazing accomplishment," said Stephanie Moretz, the Walker College instructor who administers the exam. "We celebrate the time and hard work that led them here!"
Each student received a certificate and a small keepsake in recognition of their achievements.
