Sobey School of Business releases its first research bulletin
Date Published: June 8, 2020
The first annual Research Bulletin of the Sobey School of Business profiles our research accomplishments during the 2018-2019 academic year. Sobey School has a long tradition of excellent research. Our researchers are sought-after partners for government, third sector and business. We invite you to download the 2018-2019 Research Bulletin, released June 2020.
The Dean opens the bulletin with this message:
"As academics, research remains one of the most important contributions we make to the world. Since coming to lead the Sobey School of Business two years ago, continuing to celebrate and accelerate the exemplary research work done here has been a primary goal of mine. This bulletin is intended as a step towards developing our community’s awareness of the quality and quantity of excellent research coming out of the Sobey School of Business.
Our researchers publish in top journals, and explore a wide breadth of topics, as you will see herein. We have several active research centres that are exploring cutting edge topics in retail innovation, social impact measures, co-operative accounting best practices and economics of immigration, among other topics. Our PhD program produces top scholars in Management. Soon we will add new streams that will expand our PhD scholarship into Accounting and Finance.
We recently completed our strategic plan for the next five years, titled Elevating Impact, with research and scholarship as one of our three key goals. The goal speaks to fostering an environment that will inspire research excellence and train the next generation of scholars. There are many elements in fostering such an environment. Recognition is a starting point and the publication of this bulletin is a step in that direction. I am very pleased to see the breadth of impactful scholarship profiled in the pages of this bulletin and I congratulate each contributor for their accomplishments over this past year. Collectively, we are committed to making an impact on the practice of business in the Atlantic region and beyond."
