Brown Bag Symposia

The Department of Marketing, HR, and Management hosts a regular series of Brown Bag Symposium in which faculty members present their latest research findings, talk about pedagogical techniques, get feedback from colleagues about ongoing projects, and more.

April 22, 2009 – Professor Arifin Angriawan (Strategic Management) presented his research entitled “R&D Intensity & Firm Performance: The Moderating Role of the Proportion of Outside Directors.”  The presentation was well attended by staff and faculty from three departments.  The discussion was lively and challenging.

October 21, 2008 – Professor Junyong Kim (Marketing) presented his research entitled “Effects of Return Policies on Consumer’s Post-Consumption Evaluations:  A Counter Factual Thinking Perspective.”  The research, in part, looks at the impact of liberal versus stringent return policies on consumers’ overall product evaluations after purchase. 



September 23, 2008 – Professor Susan Conners (Equine Management) talked to the group about instructional design in her talk entitled “From Chalkboard to Blackboard: Instructional Design and Assessment in a World of Technology.”  She provided clarity and insight to the group about the process of building a course from the bottom up and how the critical assessment we all must do is a natural result of this process.  She emphasized that the process comes first and then we choose the appropriate technology.
