Center for Economic Research Hosts Fall Seminars

AUG. 18, 2006--A number of timely business seminars with provocative topics are scheduled for the Friday Seminar Series by the Center for Economics Research at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

An exploration of business ethics and religion, "Business Ethics is from Mars, Religion is from Venus: Why the Two Need to Talk," is presented by Brian Huffman, a UW-RF professor of management, on Sept. 29 from 3:15 to 4 p.m. in Room 321, South Hall. Huffman offers a perspective on why society needs a dialogue between religion and business.

Upcoming seminars include an exploration of the value relevance of foreign currency on Oct. 13; decision-making factors in failing projects on Nov. 3; organizational challenges in launching new products on Nov. 17; and economics literacy in high schools on Dec. 1.

All seminars are free, open to the public and designed for students, educators, business people and community leaders. A refreshment and social time precedes each seminar at 3 p.m. in Room 317, South Hall.

The Friday Seminar Series is designed to share relevant research of UW-RF faculty, staff and students and industry leaders with the greater community. The seminar schedule may be subject to change.

The mission of the CER is to assist and encourage research that supports the mission of the UW-RF College of Business and Economics as well as other colleges within the university. The center also provides a Web-based outlet for research efforts at www.uwrf.edu/cer .
