Business Administration Research

Learn More, Earn More

Research helps boost your knowledge and your career.

Developing professional skills and standing out to employers are obvious benefits of doing research as an undergrad, but perhaps more importantly, it helps move our field forward. Business relies on data to make decisions, and we get that data from research. Through research, we can continue innovation in business administration. If you'd like to participate in optional research, get in touch with a professor to explore the possibilities.

"Our research project was titled, Moral Beliefs and Organization Information Security Policy Compliance: The Role of Gender... this research project was outside of my comfort zone, and it was a challenging opportunity for me. It forced me to learn to think critically and become more advanced in areas that I wasn’t as familiar with, such as information security. Not only did I learn about information security, but I also learned more about the research process, including research writing as well as analyzing and interpreting data."
