On Wednesday April 18th, Stevenson University Business Administration major Iliyan Slavov of Kazanlak, Bulgaria was awarded the Geraldine and Sam Dell Scholarship for Character and Excellence in Business at an award reception at Rockland Center on the Owings Mills campus.

This scholarship is awarded to an exceptional senior student in the Brown School of Business and Leadership who demonstrates strong ethical grounding and a work ethic resulting in academic and personal success.

On moving from Bulgaria to Maryland to attend Stevenson University, Iliyan said “Diving into a whole new world helped me understand mine better and set new goals. New goals that are formed based on my background, interests, and the education I am getting here at Stevenson University.” In addition to the Dell Scholarship, Iliyan is also a member of the Stevenson University School of Business and Leadership team that placed second in the Weinman Cup competition at Towson University on April 13 2018.

“I believe that if you do not understand the culture you will fail to adapt. So, to me this means as a start you must understand people’s differences. Being at Stevenson is allowing me to explore those differences” said Illyan.

Additionally, Dr. Ora Freedman, professor of economics at the Brown School of Business and Leadership, delivered the Distinguished Faculty Presentation at the  award reception. Dr. Freeman presented her research on the economics of climate change and how she employed the economic model of cap and trade to empirically test if the model provides the appropriate incentive to reduce carbon emissions, in an equitable manner.
