MMIB Faculty Continue Strong Publication Record

Staying current in one's discipline, especially in the ever-evolving world of business can be a challenge. The faculty from EKU's Department of Management, Marketing and International Business have a proven record for research and publication. Early into 2018, Dr. Lana Carnes and Dr. Allen Engle have already received word of accepted publications.

Carnes is Professor of Corporate Communication and Technology and her article, "A country in crisis: Will Greece survive?" was recently published in the Journal for Global Business Education.  The article was written to fill a need for in-depth international business articles regarding specific countries and the many aspects of their cultural identity and the way they conduct business.  Greece was studied to help educators and students build an understanding of the current crisis affecting the economic, political, and societal wellbeing of this country.  The austerity measures currently imposed on Greece and the influx of refugees entering Europe through this gateway country are explored for their impact on the Grecian people.  Activities for incorporating the article into international business classes are included.

Engle is a Foundation Professor of Management and Harold Glenn Campbell Endowed Chair of International Business. Well known for his work in international human resource management, Engle has recently published two new works co-authored with Morzena Stor and Jozef Poor. Both will be published in the Journal of Intercultural Management. The two-part piece is entitled: "Juxtaposition of organizational competitive factors and performance evaluation in conjunction with their implications for HRM in MNCs." Part One is the "contextual review and comparison of Central European and Polish findings" and Part Two deals with "statistical correlation analysis within the Polish findings." This research stream is a result of Professor Engle’s ongoing work with Jozsef Poor, from Budapest. Since 2008 they have worked together to create and coordinate the Central and Eastern European International Research Team (CEEIRT), a consortium of some ten to twelve academics teaching and cooperating on ongoing research throughout the Central and Eastern European region, including Russia and the Ukraine. These two empirical articles focus on the human resource activities of multinational subsidiaries operating in Poland.

MMIB Chair Dr. Weiling Zhuang said, "According to AACSB, research by faculty helps develop curricula, contributes to the intellectual climate of the institution, and strengthens the academic reputation of the school."
