This intro-to-research session is for those students who would like to learn more about research at KFBS, including those who plan to pursue the honors thesis. It is for students who are either curious about research opportunities at Kenan-Flagler, intend to conduct research, or who just want to learn more about the research process.
A panel of faculty researchers, Ph.D. and undergraduate students will discuss: what motivated them to pursue research; the purposes and benefits of various kinds of business research; the various methods for collecting and analyzing data; and how to conduct research responsibly. We will also address opportunities and resources that exist at KFBS and across campus for undergraduate researchers, including how to find a research mentor and develop a productive mentor-mentee relationship.
Students will meet faculty and student researchers at Kenan-Flagler Business School.
