In describing the UConn School of Business at this moment, 76 years into its accomplished history, the word “engaged” captures the essence. Our students, faculty and staff are engaged with each other, with our alumni, with the corporate community and with the University.
The School’s growth has been extraordinary, both in terms of enrollment and creating and maintaining vibrant, effective and relevant academic programs. We are transforming the future—of our students, our state, our industries and our world. There is much to celebrate.
Anna Brown, assistant professor of accounting, earned a Best Paper Award at the American Accounting Association International Section Meeting in Tampa, Florida, in January 2017. She presented her paper, “Did U.S. Firms Experience Positive Information Externalities Associated with Mandatory IFRS Adoption?” which examines whether U.S. firms experience information spillovers or externalities when their global peers adopt more similar financial reporting standards.
An OPIM professor with a near-perfect student rating, an expert in entrepreneurship and startups, an MSA graduate who wants to help lead the program she loves, and a management professor who specializes in international business growth are among 14 new faculty members joining the School of Business for the Fall 2016 semester.
