Business Student Research Forum
Christina Jiminez recieves the first place award in the 2010 Student Research forum from Dr. Doug Bible, Associate Dean of the School of Business. Event organizer, Dr. Binshan Lin, is shown in the doorway.
The LSUS Business Student Research Forum celebrates excellence and creativity in business research, and offers an opportunity to share the expertise our students have gained during studies in the LSUS School of Business. Students, visitors, and even faculty can learn what students have discovered through their business research projects.
The goal of this Forum is to showcase the quality and diversity of LSUS business student research projects and present it to both on- and off-campus community. The 2010 Forum featured fifteen excellent business research projects developed by eight MBA/ET MBA students and ten undergraduate students under the guidance of seven faculty mentors. This year’s research projects included case studies based on student interaction with actual businesses, survey data or results of other empirical studies, secondary research related to a business firm or particular industry, and simulation/modeling research. The results of our students’ research projects were displayed in posters and showcased at the Forum, which was held Friday, November 5th, in the University Center.
