Welcome from Dean John Elliott

I am pleased that Associate Dean Ba has helped create a Research Newsletter for the UConn School of Business. It is timely as we continue to increase our emphasis on research. It is relevant because it reinforces the new focus by the AACSB on research that is not only high quality, but also aligned with the emphasis on innovation, impact and engagement. These themes are reflected in many of the research projects of our faculty. Their work is innovative, it has impact on business practice and it is often informed and motivated by our engagement with the professional communities in Connecticut and beyond.

Message from the Associate Dean of Research

Welcome to the inaugural Research Newsletter of the University of Connecticut School of Business. We are excited to share our many far-reaching faculty research achievements with our colleagues around the world. Read more
