Spring 2022 Recipient!

Hau Luu Congratulations on becoming the first JHBC OAE Student Opportunity Fund Recipient

The JHBC Office of Academic Equity Announces Recipient 

of the JHBC OAE Student Opportunity Fund 

In March 2022, the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration (JHBC) Office of Academic Equity (OAE) officially launched the Student Opportunity Fund. The students selected received one of the JHBC OAE support funds which ranged between $500-$1000.  

The first recipient of the $1000 JHBC OAE Student Opportunity Fund is Hau Luu! Luu is a third-year international student from Vietnam and is currently a senior majoring in Business Administration with a double concentration in International Business and Finance.  

Luu states that he, “chose these two majors because he wants to learn the different business management practices found all over the world and the uniqueness of the financial world.” Luu also revealed that his goal after graduation is to work in an environment where he will be able to learn and explore more about the dynamics of the business field. 

Not only is Luu a student assistant on the CSUSB campus, but he is also a lifetime member of Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS), the international business honor society. Only the top 10% of undergraduate & top 20% of graduate business administration students are eligible to be invited to join BGS and Luu has clearly shown his dedication to his academic programs. BGS members are deemed the “Best In Business!”

Congratulations to Hau Luu on being the first recipient of the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration’s Office of Academic Equity’s Student Opportunity Fund.
