Cutting-edge research on issues ranging from gender diversity and securities fraud to mining, ethics and responsible investment will be showcased at the second Schulich Research Day taking place this Wednesday at York University’s Schulich School of Business.
Schulich is ranked among the world’s top business schools for its outstanding research. Corporate Knights magazine ranks Schulich one of the top three schools in the world for research in responsible business. And the 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek ranking rated Schulich among the top five schools in the world outside the United States for “Intellectual Capital”, which measures high-level research output.
The poster gallery viewing, where researchers will be available to answer questions about their work, will be held in the CIBC Marketplace at Schulich, from 1 to 2pm, on Wednesday, Jan. 28. A panel discussion on “Research Frontiers at Schulich: Past, Present and Future” will follow opening remarks from Dirk Matten, associate dean, research, and Hewlett-Packard Chair in Corporate Social Responsibility.
The Dean’s Research Impact Awards, which include a $5,000 prize, will be presented at 3:30pm. The Lifetime Achievement Award will recognize a researcher’s achievement of true distinction in his or her research field, integrity and ability to inspire alumni, faculty, staff, students and the research community. The Emerging Leader Award will recognize a researcher’s remarkable professional and research accomplishments and demonstrated commitment to fostering relationships, research community-building and advancing Schulich’s international reputation for research excellence.
