WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Lycoming College business management students will present research findings on various topics with the theme of "Management Innovations in the Past 200 Years" on Monday, Dec. 5, from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Poster presentations will take place in Pennington Lounge of the College's Academic Center. The event is free and open to the public.
The research event, part of Lycoming's bicentennial celebration, was developed by Dr. Neil Boyd, associate professor of management, to showcase business research and myth-busting skills. The students used an evidence-based research approach, a rather new technique in the field of management, to develop management recommendations for practicing managers.
