Kendra Hart Has Paper Published in Journal of Consumer Psychology

Kendra Hart’s paper “Say no more! The liability of strong ties on desire for special experiences”, co-authored with Miranda Goode and Matt Thomson of the Ivey Business School, was accepted at The Journal of Consumer Psychology (JCP).  JCP is one of the pinnacle journals in the field of consumer behaviour.  It is a FT45 journal – one of the 45 journals used by the Financial Times in compiling their influential Business School research rank.  In addition to being a top-tier marketing journal, JCP is also the official journal of the Society for Consumer Psychology, Division 23 of the American Psychological Association, making the journal impactful for scholars in psychology as well as marketing.  The paper is tentatively scheduled for publication in January 2016.

Congratulations Kendra!

Enactus National Competition

Our Enactus Team competed this week in the National Competition in Toronto.  The competition started with 58 teams and our students made it to the semi-final pool where they competed against some of the largest teams in the country including Memorial, Ryerson, and Windsor.
Our team did not advance, but performed very well and we are all very proud of them.
All of these students are winners in terms of the impact they have had with their projects and we are fortunate to be able to work with them.
Many thanks to Wendelin and all of the others who have supported these students over the last year.
