Campbell Business holds Excel workshop for students

Business - Excel WorkshopBUIES CREEK – Campbell Business Assistant Professor Dr. Corrine Siebenschein hosted an Excel workshop for students on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at the First Citizens Wealth Management Center on campus. The newest member of the Campbell Business Finance Department, Dr. Siebenschein covered basic Excel tips such as conditional formatting, subtotaling and freeze panes, and efficient and accurate calculations. A packed room full of Campbell Business students attended the workshop voluntarily in an effort to learn and sharpen their skills, as attendance was not mandatory.

The workshop was the first in a series that is ongoing and will vary in degrees of difficulty. The workshops are designed to introduce students to simple functions in Excel that will increase their efficiency and productiveness. Proficiency in Excel is of the utmost importance and gives students a competitive edge as employers continue to seek out applicants with strong software skills.

She earned her Bachelor of Science in Finance and Mathematics from the University of South Carolina and her Ph.D. in Finance from Michigan State University. Dr. Siebenschein taught at West Virginia University prior to joining the Campbell Business faculty.
