Business faculty noted for excellence, productivity
Faculty members in the College of Business Administration are known nationally and internationally for their scholarly achievements and significant contributions to their fields. Recently, the efforts of three in particular have garnered special notice.
The latest to be recognized is Dr. Sung Bae, the Ashel G. Bryan/Huntington Bank Professor. In a study published this year, “Most Prolific Authors in the Finance Literature: 1959-2008,” Bae is listed in the top 3 percent of the most frequently appearing authors in 26 core finance journals—out of more than 17,000 finance authors.
The study, conducted by Jean L. Heck and Philip L. Cooley, can be found here.
Another well-known scholar in the business college, Dr. Timothy Fuerst, economics, is among the top 4 percent of cited authors by RePEc Author Services, out of approximately 14,000 authors.
Congratulations also go to Dr. Lucy Chernykh, finance, for winning the Emerald Management Reviews Citation of Excellence award. Her article on "Ultimate Ownership and Control in Russia," published in the Journal of Financial Economics (Vol. 88, Issue 1), has been selected as one of the 50 best management articles published in 2008.
According to Emerald Group Publishing Ltd., management experts from industry and academia selected the world's top 400 management titles. Then, independent subject experts assessed every article in each of these journals and chose the best 50 authors for this prestigious award. Chernykh’s article was selected as one of the top among 15,000 reviewed.
Chernykh used groundbreaking research to provide new tools for identifying true ownership of Russian publicly traded companies by utilizing empirical data rather than a survey method. Ultimate company ownership impacts corporate governance and investor protection.
Emerald Management Reviews is an abstracting and indexing database that covers every article in the top 400 business and management journals worldwide, including such titles as Harvard Business Review and the Journal of Finance.
We salute Falcon football star Freddie Barnes for being one of three nominees for the prestigious Biletnikoff Award for best college receiver. While another athlete won last night, Barnes has brought national attention to BGSU, and we wish him and the rest of the Falcons success in the upcoming Humanitarian Bowl.
Spring registration numbers lag
Spring registrations are slightly behind where we would like them to be, according to enrollment management staff. We are implementing initiatives to encourage registration, both with continuing students and those who have left before completing their degree. The Student Enrollment Communication Center has been working with the colleges to contact all continuing, nonregistered students to promote their registration for spring 2010. All faculty and staff are encouraged to assist students in signing up for spring classes.
