Business Research

Previous Issue - Spring 2010

Successful research often starts with a belief that you will find 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 Hankamer School of Business, we have conducted studies that matter for decades.

This issue of Focus highlights some of our practical results. The stories presented here take readers on a journey that connects Hankamer professors and students with global businesses and international trade agreements, health care reform, the effects of work on home life and vice versa, the impact of abstinence programs on teen-agers, cyber security, and many other areas. Name an issue that affects people, and our professors have studied it, taking students with them in the exploration. In one story offered here, a graduate student led the expedition into how a business networking site reduced turnover at a large organization.
