At the 49th Atlantic Schools of Business Conference at Cape Breton University this past weekend, the Manning School of Business received the Best Research Performance Award. This award is given to the Business School whose faculty contributed the most research to the conference on a per capita basis (i.e., pro-rated number of faculty in the business school to number of papers submitted). Dean of the Shannon School of Business, Dr. George Karaphillis, presented the award on behalf of the ASB Conference Executive to the Manning Faculty who attended the conference.
