MBA Students Present Research at Conference

MBA students Carly McCrory, Nicole Goddard, and Jackie Alexander recently presented the results of their research at the national Institute of Behavioral and Applied Management conference.  In addition to presenting their research, the students were each selected to be session chairs representing Eastern Illinois University. The research projects were mentored by Dr. Melody Wollan, Associate Professor of Management at EIU.  Ms. Goddard's research was entitled, "Is Your Employment for Love or Money?  Engagement at Work: It matters."  Ms. McCrory's project was called, "The Office at Your Office: Head of the Committee Against Workplace Bullying," and Ms. Alexander's research focused on "Corporate Messages: Are Recruitment and Marketing Messages Different?"  Through the generosity of its donors, the School of Business is proud to support student research and attendance at professional conferences.  Dr. Wollan's mentoring of student research is a vital part of the integrative learning initiatives that the School is able to provide to its students, to prepare them for future successes in their careers.
