Majors have recently participated in the following types of research:

  • Students may work with professors on special projects as needed. For example, through the Muskie Fellows Program a former student assisted a professor with background research, formulating hypotheses, and developing an initial draft of a paper presented at a national conference.
  • Across many courses and directed studies (where a student works one-on-one with a faculty member on a specialized course of study) students perform much primary and secondary research. To illustrate, students have researched information on entrepreneurship, human resources, advertising, consumer behavior, corporate training, artificial intelligence, augmented reality/virtual reality, the music business, and even the development of social media and website apps.


The Economics, Accounting, and Business Department typically employs four student assistants each year.  Duties include, but are not limited to, research assistance, grading assistance, case analyses, facilitating classroom preparation, management of the annual departmental awards ceremony, tutoring assistance, and general office duties.

Professional Activities

Many students join the Ignition program, which is open to all students, and provides resources and activities for entrepreneurial pursuits. Many Management and Marketing students play a key role in Ignition, Managing, promoting, and staffing the program so students from all majors can get the business acumen they need for their ideas.

Students also get much professional experience as some develop, manage, and promote an annual EAB Networking night, where around 30 alumni and recruiters visit campus to network with around 50 current undergraduate students.

Professional guest speakers, most often successful alumni, visit classes as guest speakers or are a part of a speaker program.
