Sport Management/Business senior Brandon Rhodes and teammates Brian Dastin, Brad Kowalk, and Nikhil Patel earned the $20,000 top prize in this year's BASF/U-M Athletics-sponsored Team Chemistry Challenge.
BASF and U-M partnered to issue this unique challenge to all full-time University of Michigan students and asked them to submit ideas on how to lessen the environmental impact of game days at University of Michigan. Students were asked to outline the problem, offer solutions on how to lessen the impact on fans and provide a detailed blueprint for the execution of the idea. Students also submitted a three-minute video demonstrating the team’s personality and supporting solution.
Brandon Rhodes, in addition to being outgoing Sport Business Association (SBA) VP, Jobs & Internships, is co-president of U-M's Michigan Sport Business Conference and was co-organizer of last fall's highly successful day-long event, featuring leading figures from sports, business, and entertainment. This year's conference is Friday, October 18.
