First Gabelli student research conference to include 16 projects
Featured Events | Apr 12, 2012 | Nicole Gesualdo
Original student research is fast becoming one of the features that sets Gabelli apart from other business schools. Our undergrads are out there tracking business trends, collecting data and coming up with new findings — which is getting them attention at international conferences and in national-caliber publications.
On April 20 and 21, that research takes the spotlight here on campus.
The Gabelli School of Business is about to hold its first-ever Undergraduate Business Research Conference at Rose Hill. All Gabelli students should stop by, even to see just one or two presentations. In 30 minutes, you can support one of your research-inclined friends (after all the hard work they put in, help them to have a good audience!) and learn something new.
About two dozen students — selected through a competitive application process — will showcase their papers. Some will represent Fordham, and others will visit from NYU, the University of San Francisco, Seattle University and Saint Peter’s College.
The conference will include a research poster display and networking session on Friday night, April 20, followed by a morning and afternoon of presentations on Saturday. Students will be judged by, and have the chance to meet, working professionals from New York City’s large corporations as well as Fordham and outside faculty.
Our conference obviously differs somewhat from a sporting event, but Fordham students are encouraged to attend your friends’ presentations on Saturday and cheer them on. Ask some questions or simply listen. Check out the conference schedule and be there to support the people you know … register here!
