RMU Hosts Sustainable Enterprises of the Future Conference

Last week, Robert Morris University hosted the Sustainable Enterprises of the Future Conference. The conference objective is to provide an international forum for the dissemination and exchange of scientific information related to sustainability issues in management, economics, marketing, accounting, finance, communication, and industrial engineering. This year’s theme was “Social Profit.”

At a conference it is typical that “Best Paper” awards are handed out. At this particular conference, there were two “Best Paper” awards:

1. Faculty Track
2. Student Track

Both awards were based on the level of rigor demonstrated in the paper. The faculty track paper that was chosen had – in the opinion of the reviewers – the strongest research methodology. This, in turn, resulted in statistical results that supported the theoretical basis of the work. The faculty winner (pictured below) is Agnieszka Sitko-Lutek of M.Curie Sklodwska University in Poland. The student winner, Katie Leone of Chatham University, submitted a paper based on her thesis. It too exhibited a high level of academic rigor.
