Course Description

This course allows third- and fourth-year College of Business students to perform research with a College of Business faculty member.  A limited number of qualified undergraduate students (restricted to one student per department per year) may undertake supervised research if they show both interest in and aptitude for independent and creative work.  Applications may be made for research in any of the disciplines in which faculty are willing to involve students.  When such research is conducted, students must submit written reports for approval by faculty of the department in which the work was conducted.  Depending on circumstances, students might be permitted to co-present their research with their faculty supervisor at an appropriate regional academic conference.  The supervising faculty member and the department chair must approve grades for such work.  Applications to enroll in the undergraduate research course must be made in writing prior to registration. Applications must have the signatures of the student, faculty supervisor, department chair, and dean.
