  • Thursday, March 23, 2023
The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is one of five finalists in a worldwide business competition.
The Triple E Awards: Entrepreneurship and Engagement Excellence in Higher Education have chosen the CIE, part of the Gary W. Rollins College of Business, as a finalist in the “Innovation and Entrepreneurship Team of the Year” category.
Sponsored by the Accreditation Council for Entrepreneurial and Engaged Universities in Germany, most of the awards are divided into four regions—Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Africa—but CIE is in a category that encompasses the entire globe.
“It means a lot of attention.
We had competitors from all over the world,” said Dr. Thomas Lyons, Clarence E. Harris Chair of Excellence in entrepreneurship and professor of marketing and entrepreneurship in the College of Business.
Triple E Awards recognize business departments, labs and centers at colleges and universities worldwide for excellence in promoting exceptional entrepreneurship and innovation programs.
First-, second- and third-place awards will be presented in Barcelona, Spain, during ceremonies taking place June 26-29.
“This international recognition validates the innovative approach of our center’s activities focused on building entrepreneurial skill sets among our students,” said College of Business Dean Robert Dooley. “I am immensely proud of our entrepreneurship program and faculty and the work they are doing.”
