School of Business Student Participated in the Georgetown International Security Simulation

The School of Business students traveled to Washington on March 2 - 3, 2018 to participate in the prestigious Georgetown International Security Simulation. The following students will represent Langston University in this cyber and national security simulation:  Buhari Buhari, Chellsy Carter, Zakiya Harris, Kyara Little, Mikal Sanders, and DeAngelo Young.

Georgetown welcomed simulation participants from Australia, The British Embassy, Fordham University, George Washington University, the Judge Advocate General's Legal Center and School, Ohio State University, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Syracuse University, University of Virginia, Washington & Lee University, Ottawa Law School, Thompson Rivers University (BC), University of Calgary, the University of Windsor, and Langston University.  Former national security legal advisor to President Barack Obama, Mary DeRosa, played the role of the President in the simulation.

Students had the opportunity to each assume a role of national, provisional, state, local, or industry authority. Student teams reflected their institutional affiliations. Langston University students represented Goldman Sachs and the Bank of New York Mellon.  Langston University is the only HBCU and the sole business school participating in this international event.  Our team is a part of Dean Snavely’s inaugural Cybersecurity Simulation Course and our ongoing efforts to become a university leader in cybersecurity.
