Business and Management Research News

Last year the business and management department launched an ongoing Research Seminar series, allowing students to hear firsthand about ongoing research projects conducted by our department faculty. The primary goals of this series are for students to be exposed to the common stages and methods of academic research and apply those to their own thesis projects. Both undergraduate and graduate students are highly encouraged to attend.

Recent research seminars have focused on topics as varied as the relationship between crime rates and gambling in Slovakia, the stimuli behind the growth of mobile phone commerce, and the benefits of investing in information and communication technology. Our seminar, hosted by Dr. Ioannis Chatziantoniou Ioannis, explores the initial idea, theoretical background, hypothesis, research methods, and findings of a study on UK housing prices that he conducted in tandem with Webster’s own Dr. Nikolaos Antonakakis and Mr. David Gabauer.
