The Lander College of Arts & Sciences in Flatbush inducted 50 Touro College students into the annual class of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international honor society in economics.
“This is the beginning, rather than the culmination of your journey,” Dr. Barry Bressler, dean of the undergraduate School of Business at LAS, said in his remarks to the inductees. “We look at this as an opportunity for you to be elevated, to elevate your goals, to elevate what you want to achieve.”
ODE is one of the world’s largest academic honor societies, with more than 680 chapters in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Egypt, France, United Arab Emirates, and Kazakhstan. Dr. Michael Szenberg, Touro’s distinguished professor of economics and business and the chair of the Economics and Business department at LAS, was the keynote speaker.
