Gustavson students engaging in business research

Students play a key role in supporting and improving business and management research at the Gustavson School of Business. We have students at all levels engaging in research.

PhD program

Research at the doctoral level ties to our PhD program. PhD students engage in research from year one of their four-year program.

Undergraduate research

At the undergraduate level, research ties to our international exchange. Many of our undergraduate students enroll in International Business Research (COM 470). This gives students who go on exchange an opportunity to develop their research and writing skills. Here, they analyze a business issue that relates to an international site location. They explore a topic of their choosing. They then report on a phenomenon that affects the entire country or region. They can also focus on a specific issue impacting a private, public or not-for-profit organization. We showcase the best papers in a publication titled Bachelor of Commerce Best Business Research Papers.
