COB Dividends Show - October 2017

The Dividends Show is a monthly program dedicated to bringing you all the latest news and information from Mississippi State University's College of Business. Each episode gives you an inside look at the College's programs and events, history, faculty, students and alumni.

In this month's episode, Dividends Show host Jeffrey Rupp speaks with student entrepreneur, Rontier Whitfield. Rontier has been working alongside the Center for Entrepreneurship & Outreach to develop her company, Esteem Juice, a natural juice drink that uses only organic ingredients. She plans to begin production this semester.

Our next guest is Chinwe Okorie, recent Business Administration and Marketing graduate and former member of the MSU Women’s Basketball team that made it all the way to the 2017 NCAA Women's National Championship Game. A native of Nigeria, Chinwe shares her story of her journey to MSU. She has become an all-star on the court and the classroom, as she was an SEC Academic Honor Roll recipient for three years straight. Chinwe is now working toward her master's degree in French at MSU, and shares her plans to one day create her own shoe line specializing in selling nice shoes in larger sizes for women.
