The New Jersey Policy Research
Organization Foundation and
The Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University
The NJPRO Foundation, and the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University proudly present our fifteenth volume of the Publications of New Jersey's Business Faculty. This collaboration, which celebrates the intellectual capital at colleges of business within the State of New Jersey, is a natural fit for our organizations. The NJPRO Foundation has a long and distinguished record of educating its constituents on important business issues of the day. The Stillman School, in sharing current research with others, seeks to improve the learning environment of students and faculty and to enhance the effectiveness of business organizations. Together, we have compiled the 2015 research works of business faculty within New Jersey. We also include teaching notes that summarize examples of ways to connect the classroom to the business world.
We are proud to recognize the very best papers from 2015. These authors have earned the Bright Idea Award for their research. We appreciate the efforts of Professor Barbara Boyington (Brookdale Community College), Dean Edward Petkus (Ramapo College of New Jersey), Dean Andrew Rosman (Fairleigh Dickinson University), Executive Vice Dean Yaw Mensah (Rutgers University-Newark and New Brunswick) and our colleagues from NJPRO who helped us in the evaluation of the many worthy papers that were submitted. Congratulations to our award winners!
