CER Seminar to be Held

FEB 10, 2006--A presentation sponsored by the Center for Economic Research at the University of Wisconsin River Falls will show how principles learned in business coursework can be applied to real life on Feb. 17 at 3:15 p.m. in room 321 South Hall on campus.            

 The event is free and open to the public.

Presenters Suzy Rogers and Claire Kilian are professors in the UW-RF College of Business and Economics. Rogers earned her bachelor's degree at Western Illinois University and her Juris Doctor degree at the University of Illinois. Kilian earned her B.A in psychology and anthropology from UW-Madison and Ph.D. from Ohio State University in labor and human resources and organizational behavior.

The presentation will involve "The Case of the Rock and Roll Partnership," which is an exercise for undergraduate law students that demonstrates how business and law knowledge applies to real life. The exercise is intended to bridge the gap between the classroom and actual situations. Rogers and Kilian will explain how the exercise was evolved and adapted for classroom use and evaluation techniques for simulations.

The presentation is sponsored by the CER, located within the CBE, and is the first of five in the Friday Seminar Series to be held this spring.
