TAMPA – On Friday, March 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sykes College of Business faculty will present their research conducted over the past year at the College of Business Faculty Research Day. It will be held in the seminar room in the Lowth Entrepreneurship Center on the 8th floor of the Daly Innovation and Collaboration Building.
In just the past year, more than 100 full-time faculty members in the College of Business have had more than 78 intellectual contributions in top journals such as International Journal of Hospitality Management, Management Accounting Research, Journal of Advertising Research and International Journal of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management.
There are five separate sessions, each lasting about an hour. Each faculty member will give a 10-minute presentation on their published research. Attendees are welcome to stay for one, a few or all sessions. There will be question-and-answer sessions to encourage further discussions of the topics presented. A full schedule of presenters and topics is available upon request.
The College of Business prides itself on being a premier teaching institution with intellectual contributions such as these making an impact on theory and practice. Faculty Research Day, according to Frank Ghannadian, dean of the College of Business, is both a celebration of the faculty successes in publishing in journals and a recognition of how the college’s applied research helps the business community.
The showcase is free and open to the public, though registration is requested. To register for the event, go tout.edu/business/facultyresearchday. For more information, contact Whitney Ortiz, coordinator of College of Business operations, email@example.com or (813) 257-3782.
