The School of Business faculty engage in a wide variety of research. We publish articles and present papers focusing on applied, discipline-based, and teaching and learning scholarship. This enables us to provide you with a rich and dynamic academic experience. While the pandemic has had wide-ranging impact, we are proud of the continuous productivity of our faculty in producing intellectual contributions.

In the past five years alone the school’s faculty have produced over 570 peer reviewed journal articles, presentations, cases and other contributions in our fields. Here is a small sample of our most recent research.
