SPSU Business school produces highly competitive students. As an example, SPSU Business students recently participated in and won statewide Georgia Social Business and Microcredit Forum among 38 teams from 32 colleges and universities across the state. The SPSU team created Restoration Trust, a micro-loan program to help abused women in Marietta break the cycle of violence by reshaping their lives via education pursuits and enterprise. Dr. Muhammad Yunus, winner of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize, was the forum's keynote speaker. He presented the top award to SPSU for having developed a plan for a workable business to address a critical social issue.
