Doctoral student publishes first paper under Harbert College of Business banner

30 Jul

Lowder Eminent Scholar and management professor Dave Ketchen and doctoral student Shelley Davis show the abstract of the first accepted research paper with the college’s new name, “Harbert College of Business.”

CEOs of the top 350 firms averaged $14.1 million per year, or 273 times more than the average worker, according to The Washington Post. Is CEO compensation fair?

A team of Harbert College of Business researchers answered the question in a paper “Dollars and sense: The implications of CEO compensation for organizational performance” accepted for publication by Business Horizons.

It is the first published research paper under the “Raymond J. Harbert College of Business” banner.

“It’s quite an honor,” said Shelley A. Davis, a doctoral student and graduate teaching assistant in management. “It’s the first paper that I have submitted, so I’m doubly excited.”

Davis teamed with doctoral candidate Jason D. DeBode and Dave Ketchen, Lowder Eminent Scholar and management professor, on the project.
