Each year, a contingent of business students from the University of Missouri–St. Louis gains first-hand experience with European Union policies and decision-making mechanisms by creating proposals and prepping a delegation that attends the Midwest Model European Union. This year, 10 students led by Betty Vining, assistant teaching professor of marketing at UMSL, participated in the simulation at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis. UMSL placed third out of 22 competing institutions.
This year’s delegation to the Midwest Model European Union included (front, from left) Jenna Waldschmidt, Fahad Aljaman, Sheena Crompton and Carly Gorka and (back, from left) Zachary Sturdefant, Salman Boer, Amar Jasarevic, Jon Kelly, Anthony Alexander and Jamie Mucalo.
