Name of Award
Carol Easley Denny Award
Michelle Wiesner, Director of the Master of Business Administration program, won a $12,500 grant from the Carol Easley Denny Award. As demonstrated by the issues related to women and the MBA which are recounted in the academic literature as well as the popular press, further analysis and exploration of the MBA experience and outcomes for women will be useful in contributing new insights to the body of knowledge on this topic. The gaps in the existing literature expose questions over why things don’t seem to have improved for women MBAs, or if they have, why this isn’t more prominent within the literature. This research study will examine the academic and professional issues for women MBAs, their outcomes, and key influences on intrinsic and extrinsic success factors.
