Ted R. Winnowski '63 Student Conference in Business


The Ted R. Winnowski '63 Student Conference in Business, coordinated by Dr. Cheryl Buff and Dr. Ashley Provencher, reflects the mission statement of the School of Business to educate future business leaders dedicated to lifelong learning. As an increasing number of faculty assign substantive research projects as part of a course requirement and the number of research based independent studies grow, TWSCB provides a venue for students to present the results of their research in this campus-wide event.

Students representing every department in the School of Business are invited to submit papers for consideration in the following tracks: Accounting, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Management, and Marketing. A review panel selects the best papers submitted for presentation. Distinguished paper awards and best presentation awards are presented at the conclusion of the conference. The conference also includes a keynote address by business leaders; past speakers have included Mary Liz Finn, Chief Human Resources Officer, Nielsen, Kate Gutman, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Solutions, UPS, Dr. William Danko, co-author of The Millionaire Next Door and associate professor of marketing at University of Albany, Mark Cattini, CEO MapInfo, and Jay Moore, Manager Global Commercial Training, General Electric. In summary, the conference provides an invaluable opportunity for faculty and students to build mentoring scholarly relationships outside the classrooms which may lead to a lifelong learning relationship between them.
