Tuesday, April 4, 2017 marked the 5th Annual School of Business Student research day. Six teams of students presented their research to a panel of judges and fielded questions on academic rigor and research design.
Top prize was awarded to Chelsey Ens and Jonathan Ens who presented their research on the Effects of Valence Framing on Eco-Friendly Seafood Purchase Decisions.
Following the presentations the School of Business Director, Dr. Frank Ulbrich, spoke about the opportunities for students at UFV and the ways in which students who are interested in pursuing their research topic further can do so during their undergraduate program. Students interested in pursuing individual research projects are encouraged to discuss their topics and the possibility of doing a directed studies course with their instructors.
