Bryan School Students and Damien Patton honored by Beta Gamma Sigma

Bryan School Students and Damien Patton honored by Beta Gamma Sigma

Damien Patton of Banjo

GREENSBORO, NC- On April 21st the Bryan School’s Chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma held its Spring Induction Ceremony to honor 42 high achieving undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students. Each semester a successful business person is chosen by the Bryan School chapter to deliver the keynote address and serve as a model of the ideals of Beta Gamma Sigma.

As a student, Damien Patton — who graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Finance in 1999 — was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma.  To date, Patton has founded five successful companies.  His latest venture, Banjo, is a mobile technology app that provides real time content discovery by location across all major social networks, and is regularly used by top news organizations such as NBC, FOX and BBC to track world events.  In January, Banjo was named the top featured app in the Android market as well as a 2014 “Editor’s Choice” by Google, one of the highest honors Patton and his staff could receive.  In March, WIRED Magazine named Banjo “the fastest startup in Silicon Valley” and the Wall Street Journal recently reported on the success of Banjo’s latest round of funding.

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in an undergraduate or master’s program at a school accredited by AACSB International-The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

The Bryan School of Business and Economics produces graduates who are innovative and principled leaders and exceptional problem solvers. One of the largest business schools in North Carolina, the Bryan School boasts an AACSB International accreditation in business and accounting that puts it among the top 3 percent of business schools in the world. Our students and alumni carry forward their Bryan School experience to make meaningful contributions where they work, live and lead.

Dynamic mailboxes could revolutionize campus mail

Since the beginning of the academic year students at UNCG have used their email address to receive regular mail, the implementation of a first-of-its-kind solution that solves not only a space problem but also a generational gap.

The solution is the brainchild of Robert Walker, the director of business services and systems for the university. The problem was the renovation of Moran Commons, the university dining hall, which used to centrally house 6,000 student post office boxes.
