Advisory Board Research Impact Award

The Advisory Board Research Impact Award highlights business research at Memorial that has real-world implications. The award is selected by the faculty’s advisory board who are leaders in the business community.

In this innovative approach, the advisory board evaluates the research impact on teaching, practice or policy, and the extent to which the research could impact their own business practice. It also gives the advisory board an opportunity to understand what we do here as researchers and ensures we are connecting to the community.
