MBA students' research to be published
October 7, 2010
Bradley MBA students Kristine Shanine and Brigette Schuenemann, are marking a milestone most researchers don’t experience until after graduation – publication.
The pair will soon present their work at an October conference of the International Academy of Business and Economics, and their work will appear in print in the Review of Business Research.
In the paper, Shanine and Schuenemann provide a detailed discussion comparing and contrasting the four approaches to process-based strategies and develop eleven propositions. They completed the work as part of an independent study with Dr. Ross Fink and Dr. Laurence Weinzimmer.
Both of the students were thankful for the help they received from the instructors in completing their research.
“It was pretty interesting to see the two of them work together,” Schuenemann said of the two instructors. “We set goals with them weekly and then we would meet up with them. They have such different specialties. It was great to see the collaboration between the two of them, and their individual strengths come out to help us.”
With the conference right around the corner, the students are pleased to be finished with the bulk of their work.
“I feel very accomplished to have completed this,” Shanine said.
After the conference, Shanine and Schuenemann will likely get back to work furthering their study and beginning to draw conclusions.
Both realize the tremendous opportunity Bradley has afforded them in promoting student research on such a professional level. Their achievement is a not only a personal success, but a testament to the quality of Bradley’s MBA program.
“It was such a positive experience,” Schuenemann said. “It is nice to be able to give back. We can support our professors and the university, just as they have supported us.”
