Did You Know?
Fogelman Faculty Answer Interesting Research Questions
The Fogelman College of Business and Economics is composed of a research-active faculty which allows our school to stay abreast of cutting-edge information and knowledge dissemination. Take a look at some of their most recent interesting findings:
Did you know that gay-bias bully victims are more likely to attempt suicide, and that the presence of a Gay-Straight Alliance on a school’s campus can mitigate this relationship?
Dr. Marla Royne Stafford, Great Oaks Foundation Professor of Marketing and Chair of the Department of Marketing & Supply Chain Management in the Fogelman College, helps explain these findings in an article titled “How Gay-Straight Alliance Groups Mitigate the Relationship between Gay-Bias Victimization and Adolescent Suicide Attempts,” which is forthcoming in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
Did you know that most stocks in the U.S. are traded on multiple stock exchanges, but about 14.5% of trading occurs in non-exchange computer systems called “dark pools?”
Dr. McInish and his coauthors discuss this trading shift in their paper, “Trading Rules, Competition for Order Flow and Market Fragmentation,” forthcoming in the Journal of Financial Economics.
