College of Business Student Research Day

College of Business (COB) Student Research Day provides an opportunity undergraduate and graduate students from the Sykes College of Business to present their current or recently completed research projects in a poster format. Research may have been performed as part of a course, an Honors Research Fellowship or an independent project conducted under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Projects that are in progress or in the early stages of development are also encouraged.

The symposium provides participants with excellent preparation for future presentations in both educational and professional settings. Students who are not currently engaged in research projects are also encouraged to attend to learn more about student research within the College of Business.

The COB Student Research Day will be held on Friday, April 24, 2015, from 3-5 p.m. in the Cass Gym.

    Poster presentation

    All participants will be eligible for awards.
    UT College of Business faculty members will serve as judges to evaluate the quality of the research presented by students. Monetary prizes will be awarded to the top three presentations. Door prizes will also be raffled off to attendees.

    The posters will be judged by faculty based on the following criteria:

    1. Clear focus or central research question/problem statement
    2. Sound research methodology
    3. Clear presentation of results/product/performance or expected outcome and ability to answer questions
    4. Progress on the project to date
    5. Contribution to the field or discussion of potential impact

    Suggested presentation guidelines

    The purpose of the poster should be to engage audience members in a discussion of the research. The poster should be no larger than 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide. Easels will be provided to display the posters. Posters should have a title and list of authors and their affiliations at the top. The poster should include a copy of the abstract. The body of the poster should be self-explanatory and include an appropriate balance of text and graphics in describing the research project or activity. Graphic components may include data tables, graphs, photographs or diagrams and should be labeled to communicate their significance.
