YSU 5 business grad students present research

Staff report


Five graduate students in Youngstown State University’s Williamson College of Business’ master of business administration program presented their research at the International Symposium of the Analytic Hierarchy Process in Washington, D.C.

The symposium brings together researchers, teachers and students to share their research and experiences in decision-making.

YSU Professor of Management Birsen Karpak said presentations from doctorate students are common at the symposium, but this is the first time a symposium organization invited master’s-level students.

The three YSU teams submitted research proposals to the symposium, and they were accepted after a review process.

The research papers are being presented at a session titled YSU Williamson College of Business Administration AHP in Decision Making, organized by Karpak and chaired by Ramesh Dangol, professor of management at WCBA.
