Alesius receives Student Paper Award


Nov. 1, 2017

Christian Alesius, a Slippery Rock University marketing and management major from North Huntingdon, was recognized by the Southeastern Chapter of the Institution for Operations Research & The Management Sciences as the regional undergraduate recipient of the Student Paper Award.

Alesius worked with Kurt Schimmel, professor of business, and Jeananne Nicholls, professor of business, to create an essay that interpreted the key characteristics of student-led organizations. The paper, "College of Business Organizations: Analysis of Member Satisfaction," provides a statistically backed list of attributes that student leaders and organization advisers alike could use to benefit current members while attracting new ones.
