During the Walmart IT Summit at 8 P.M, students from across the country were presented with a business case and told to turn in an application design and presentation by 5 A.M.
Walmart facilitated a unique opportunity to bounce ideas off of other students from varying programs. Our team selected a concept that integrates applications to raise business value. As a finalist, we presented our application to the CIO and a number of Vice Presidents. Our team won first runner-up, and the group recognized me as most important contributor. I gained valuable presentation skills and practiced quick but deliberate decisions. The Walmart Summit was an excellent learning and networking experience between students and professionals.
