Fall 2023 Department Digest

Every semester brings new opportunities and possibilities – and that means new research and publications. Read up on what our faculty and staff have been up to this past semester.

Global Supply Chain Management

New paths are always emerging in business – and in business education, embracing them gives us an edge. John Saldanha, Sears Chair in Global Supply Chain Management and director of the Wehrle Global Supply Chain Lab, wrote for AACSB, the Chambers College’s accrediting body, about the pros and cons of incorporating VR technology into the classroom.


“Spinning an Entrepreneurial Career: Motivation, Attribution & the Development of Organizational Capabilities,” co-authored by Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship Dr. Hyeonsuh Lee, was accepted for publication in Strategic Management Journal. Delving into the psychology of entrepreneurs, the paper's findings suggest an important connection between motivating factors and success.


Think it’s just last night's game that has you feeling sick? Economics professors Brad Humphreys and Jane Ruseski aren’t so sure. In a new paper they’ve co-authored for Sports Economic Review, they outline evidence suggesting that cities with professional sports teams bear increased flu mortality rates.


Julian Givi, assistant professor of marketing and an expert on the psychology of gift-giving, was extensively quoted by USA Today in an article focusing on Secret Santa gifts. Make sure to prepare for your upcoming holiday parties by reading it here.
