From Russian finance to sports stadiums, students present research topics at ShowCASE event

One thing Case Western Reserve University and its eight schools have in common? Research. At Weatherhead, our professors have pioneered revolutionary business concepts being implemented in board rooms and class rooms around the country. Our students’ penchant for finding new solutions, chipping away at problems and seeing the bigger picture is often realized through research projects at all levels and across business programs. 

This year’s university-wide research ShowCASE featured more than 600 presentations, which lined the Veale Convocation, Recreation and Athletic Center last Friday. Weatherhead participants showcased topics ranging from the impacts of Russian culture on financial reporting to analyzing the commercialization prospects of a rare Earth metal. The enthusiasm was palpable as students beamed next to their posters and PowerPoint presentations, ready to discuss at the first sign of interest from onlookers.
