Sun Devil stories

A scholarship fund honoring the late Robert K. Wexler (BS Accountancy '84) will take a W. P. Carey student all the way to Prague this year, thanks to the generosity of Wexler’s fraternity brothers. Jeff Barnes and Brian Amster joined Robert’s sister Beth Wexler in presenting a $2,500 check, on behalf of Mike Rosenthal (BS Economics '82, MBA '84) and other Sigma Nu alumni involved in the fundraiser.

The secret gig startup that's backed by Richard Branson offers intimate, invite-only events that capture artists and audiences alike.

Sun Devil 100 celebrates the achievements of Sun Devil-owned and Sun Devil-led businesses across the globe. Continuing an incredible legacy of entrepreneurship and leadership, the majority of alums recognized this year are W. P. Carey graduates. Carson Holmquist (BS Management ’08) received top honors, ranking No. 1 overall among ASU alums selected to the Sun Devil 100 for 2017. We caught up with him to talk about his entrepreneurial path, and get his thoughts on what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur in today's business landscape.

Student-run consulting firm New Venture Group continues to help W. P. Carey students discover career paths while contributing substantially to the success of organizations.
