Featured Research

Lobbying expenditures yield big returns (audio)
When it comes to lobbying, more firms are getting into the game. Recent research by David Parsley, E. Bronson Ingram Professor in Economics and Finance, provides a picture of just how profitable such activities can be.

Thinking like a CEO (audio)
Leading a company often involves a paradox. The skills that propel a person to the top—whether an entrepreneur building a new business or someone rising through an established program—may not be the skills most essential for guiding the entire enterprise as a chief executive. Michael Burcham, Professor for the Practice of Management, David Furse, Adjunct Professor of Management, and Kimberly Pace, Clinical Assistant Professor of Management, reflect on qualities that characterize how CEOs think and behave.

Hiring advice for employers (audio)
Even in a tight job market, high-pressure recruitment tactics can poison the employer-employee relationship. Research by Ray Friedman, Brownlee O. Currey Professor of Management, shows that a perceived mistreatment during the recruitment process can prove costly for the employer months or even years down the road.
