Achievements for April 5, 2018
College of Business faculty, staff and students recognized for recent achievements include Dr. Regina Frey-Cordes, Amy Lester, Abigail Nappier Cherup, Dayna Larreau and Dr. Ann Mari May.
  • Dr. Regina Frey-Cordes, visiting professor of management, presented “Creating an Innovative Study Abroad Program: A 13-week Global Immersion in Germany” at the Consortium for Undergraduate International Business Education conference. She talked about the college’s global immersion program to Germany planned for this summer, which incorporates language, business and cultural courses, as well as an extended internship opportunity in local firms in the region.
  • Amy Lester, coordinator of the international business program, presented “When the World Comes to You: Designing Programs for All Students” at the Consortium for Undergraduate International Business Education conference. She discussed international student program initiatives in the College of Business such as Conversation and Culture Pals, Career Readiness Certificate, the Export Challenge and more.
  • Abigail Nappier Cherup, a doctoral student in marketing, was selected as a winner in the AMS Review/Sheth Foundation Doctoral Competition for Conceptual Articles for her paper titled, “Drivers of Persuasion Knowledge: Decentering the Ideal Consumer.” Her project brings together marketing and feminist theory to examine what drives the development of persuasion knowledge among all consumers and discusses less privileged ways of knowing about persuasion. She will present this research at the AMS Conference in May.
  • Dayna Larreau, outreach support associate, was featured in the Review of Economic and Business Studies for her research with faculty at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Her article titled, “Hedonic Price Analysis of Non-Barren Broodmares” examines factors that influence the selling price of Thoroughbred mares used for breeding. Her results concluded that the mare’s pedigree and racing success of her offspring are more important than her racing performance in determining price.
Dr. May honored by the Mortar Board Black Masque Chapter.

  • Dr. Ann Mari May, professor of economics, was honored by the Mortar Board Black Masque Chapter, a UNL senior honorary society, as the March Professor of the Month. On March 30, student members presented her with the honor for upholding and maintaining the society’s ideals of scholarship, leadership and service.
  • Dr. May also discussed her survey of economists in 18 European Union countries that found sizable gender gaps in opinions with NET, Nebraska’s PBS and NPR stations. May and her co-authors – Dr. Mary McGarvey, associate professor of economics, and Dr. David Kucera of the International Labour Organization in Geneva, Switzerland – provided the first systematic analysis of differences in views of male and female economists in Europe on a broad range of topics including core precepts, government intervention, taxes, environmental protection and equal opportunity.
