Letter from the Editor

The College of Business at Athens State University is dedicated to providing students with the education and opportunities that will prepare them for professional positions in business, finance, or government by enhancing their skills in research, communication, technology, ethics, and critical thinking. To expand these opportunities, we are pleased to introduce the Athens State College of Business Student Research Journal. This new publication is designed to support and encourage excellence in undergraduate research and writing in all areas of business, and to provide a vehicle for the dissemination of quality research studies by Athens State University students.

We are excited about this venue for student experience. By contributing research papers to the Journal to be considered for publication, students have the opportunity to gain experience and expand their professional resumes with peer-reviewed, scholarly publications. Each issue of the journal will be freely available on the College of Business website, making the articles searchable and retrievable by students, researchers, employers, and others interested in the many topics our students pursue in their academic studies. We encourage Athens State students and their advisors to review and submit outstanding research papers to the Journal for publication.

With the third issue of the Athens State Student Research Journal, we are continuing/expanding the exceptional work done by Athens State College of Business students as they pursue their educational journey and begin their professional careers. We would like to invite you to join us in this venture.
