MBA Research

In advance of the 13th Annual Evening MBA Research Forum, working professionals from the class of 2014 explored finance, information technology management, new-venture development and management, resulting in projects ranging from Tyler Michalak’s research, “Market Reaction to Semiconductor Innovations,” to Seth Cagle’s “Impact of Terrorist Incidents on Financial Indices of a Country,” and Rexella William’s “How Does an Emotionally Intelligent Leader Affect Employee Job Performance and Job Satisfaction?”

The State Employees Federal Credit Union has supported the Research Forum since its inception. SEFCU President and CEO Mike Castellana ’84, ’92 earned an MBA in the evening program as well as an undergraduate degree in accounting at UAlbany. Two SEFCU employees presented their work in the forum this year: Nicole Derubertis ’11,’14 researched savings rate disparities, and Nicholas Baratto ’14 examined employee engagement and motivation.
