USU College of Business Raises Money for Opportunities in South America

LOGAN, Utah- Utah State University College of Business students are rasing money to help develop business opportunities in South America.

USU professor David Herrmann said his spring semester MHR 3110 students are raising money to donate to possible business opportunities in South America. Hermann said the summer section of the course does a study abroad where they are presented with potential business models from the locals and the students get to decide where to distribute the money.

"The students get an educational opportunity and a chance to refine a business model," Herrmann said. "They also get the chance to provide hands on humanitarian service."

USU student Dan Allen said the spring semester students will be setting up booths on campus through out the spring semester for anyone interested in donating money. He said they are also setting up a Web site for anyone who wants to donate large sums directly.

"Every little bit helps," Allen said. "If someone can only give a buck that's okay."

Herrmann said it is rewarding to give an opportunity to people who otherwise wouldn't have one.

"These people don't have access to capital like we do," Herrmann said. "They are people with dreams."
