College of Business Student Research Day

College of Business (COB) Student Research Day will provide an opportunity for students from the College of Business to present their current or recently completed research projects in a poster format. Research projects that are in progress or in the early stages of development are also encouraged. The research may have been performed as part of a course, an Honors Research Fellowship or an independent project conducted with a faculty mentor. The symposium will provide participants with outstanding preparation for graduate or professional school and future presentations, and will foster greater awareness of student research within the college.

The COB Student Research Day will be held on April 25, 2014.

  • Poster presentations will be held in the Cass Gym from 3-5 p.m.
