Tyler Eades, senior Management Accounting major from Shelbyville, is preparing for the national stage. His abstract, "Putting Business Analysis in Perspective: Application of a Strategic Analysis Framework on Tesla's Strategic Options", has been selected for this year's SAM International Business Conference.

The Society for Advancement of Management 2017 International Business Conference will be held in Orlando, Fla., March 30 to April 2. Business leaders from around the world will meet for a series of sessions focused on this year's theme: "Advancing Management: Leadership and Change".

A collaborative effort, Eades' paper is the result of many hours of research and writing. Conference submissions are double-blind reviewed. With the help of Dr. Qian Xiao, Assistant Professor of Management, and graduate student Tyler Roark (Richmond), the paper passed review and Eades is set to travel to Orlando.

"I am very excited and honored to be representing the university and the SAM club at this year's international SAM conference," said Eades. "With it being the first time in five years Eastern Kentucky University has had this opportunity, I intend to put my best foot forward in demonstrating the hard work put in by the team, as well as the academic excellence the university has instilled in myself through the years I have spent learning here."

According to Dr. Xiao, SAM faculty advisor, "This is SAM@EKU's first return to the SAM International Conference in five years. Tyler Eades will represent SAM@EKU to attend the conference and present the research. This opens the opportunity to get to learn outstanding management experience and knowledge, and network with management scholars and practitioners from other institutions. Participation in the conference is wonderful visibility for SAM@EKU and EKU as well!"
