A Celebration of the Intellectual Capital at New Jersey Colleges of Business
Seton Hall > News & Events 

For the fifth year in a row, the New Jersey Policy Research Organization Foundation, the public policy research affiliate of the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA),  New Jersey Business magazine, and the Stillman School of Business have collaborated to present the New Jersey Bright Idea & Teaching Notes Awards. The awards honor scholarship and teaching ideas in all fields of business by faculty members within New Jersey.

The Stillman School is especially pleased to announce that Yeomin Yoon, Ph.D., professor of finance,  has received an award for his work in finance. Yoon collaborated with Youngna Choi of Montclair State University to publish a paper entitled “Compensating balance: A comment” published in The International Journal of Banking and Finance. This paper concludes that whenever a bank imposes a compensating balance, the borrowing firm should prefer a bullet loan to a fully-amortized one if it wishes to avoid an ambush posed by such a balance.

Following is a complete listing of awardees:
