Successful research often starts with a belief that you will discover something that will make a difference. With business schools spending millions of dollars a year to support faculty research, our findings should matter, and at Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business, we have conducted studies that matter for decades.
As professors dedicate years to research, a crowning accomplishment is for their findings to reach others through publication. This issue of Focus features our faculty research that has been included in top publications such as the Journal of Business Ethics, the Journal of Organizational Behavior, the Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, and MIS Quarterly.
This issue of Focus also features two events and an ongoing program that have served as catalysts to research through the collaboration of international scholars and researchers. Baylor's Center for Professional Selling held a research symposium, with more than 50 attendees from around the world, in conjunction with its 25th anniversary celebration. The annual Transformative Consumer Research conference provided a dialogical forum for researchers studying how to transform the world by eliminating barriers between social change and business research. Baylor's McBride Fellowship Program continues to facilitate the exchange of ideas between faculty members and PhD students on an international level.
