Research Symposium

Seventeen WSOB students prepared posters on publicly traded companies in Dr. Ray Smith’s Organizational Effectiveness class. Students presented their research in the Roberts library as part of the fall Undergraduate Research Symposium. Many of the interactive posters had embedded QR codes that directed participants to the current stock price as well as commercial advertisements and product lines.
