2013 College of Business Information Systems Undergraduate Honoree
James took the initiative to be one of the first students in the College of Business to complete the required courses to receive the Information Systems Department’s SAP Recognition Award.
Not only did James complete the courses with great academic success, he applied for and received an internship with PG&E, due particularly to the work he put into his courses and the industry skills he learned there.
James put the same strong effort into his PG&E internship project that he has put into his SF State academic career. This resulted in James being awarded first place in an end-of-summer poster competition held for all 57 of the interns that PG&E hired.
That award was based on the business value of James’ project and on his ability to perform as a professional employee at PG&E. The firm was so impressed with James’ work that they have since hired him as a full-time employee.
Also due to his strong work and study ethic, James has maintained an overall SFSU GPA of 3.89. In response to James’ nomination for department honoree, one of his instructors in the Information Systems Department affirmed that “James was an excellent student who worked well with his peers in taking a leadership role.”
With his ability to concentrate on his academic career, understand the relationship between coursework and industry work, and his proven ability in the real world of business projects, James is sure to succeed in his cacreer goals.
