UAB and BBVA Compass have partnered to create the BBVA Compass Global Scholars Internship Program and provide UAB students a hands-on learning opportunity.
The performance of finance student Kiersten Engel as one of the top 100 international scorers on the BAT (Bloomberg Aptitude Test) earned an invitation for her to the BAT Summer Intern Challenge, an exclusive networking event in New York or London on August 1st.
Recent efforts in Congress put credit unions at risk of losing their federal tax exempt status. Credit unions say the change could hurt their services and membership. Banks support the change to what they say gives credit unions an unfair competitive advantage.
Credit unions should be able to handle the loss of the tax exemption, and not have to change the way they do business," says UAB finance professor Andreas Rauterkus. "They will still have a competitive advantage over banks due to member ownership."
Adding up all the costs – supplies, clothes, shoes and electronics – highlights how expensive it can be to go to school. According to the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 2013 Back-to-School Survey, families with school-age children will spend an average $634.78. Total spending on back-to-school is expected to reach $26.7 billion.
While the NRF said that spending is slightly down from last year, UAB School of Business Instructor Elizabeth Turnbull, M.B.A., explained that planning and preparation can help further reduce money spent.
It was a toxic mix, according to Bob Robicheaux, a retail professor with UAB who has done extensive research on the changes to the grocery industry in Alabama during the past 20 years.
“I’ve studied this very carefully and I’ve had access to proprietary information from Bruno’s,” Robicheaux said. “It’s pretty obvious that Wal-Mart targeted Alabama as the first state to try to expand its Supercenter concept aimed at the grocers here.”
