Omonigho Omokwale, who will graduate on April 30, received the FEI’s Medallion Award for outstanding performance in the MBA program. Rohini Das, a first-year Early Advantage MBA student, received a cash scholarship of $1,000.

The event hosted Rollins MBA Executive in Residence, Allen Kupetz as the speaker of the evening. Professor Kupetz’s topic was “Social Media for Financial Executives.”

The FEI Medallion is awarded annually to honor a graduating student’s outstanding academic achievements and high potential for career success in either financial analysis or financial management.
