UT Tyler Business Students to Present Papers at Research Conferences
Nelson and Lusty
Two students at The University of Texas at Tyler will present papers at two research conferences this month, Dr. Harold Doty, College of Business and Technology dean, announced.
Graduate accounting student Jay Nelson of Mount Pleasant and senior accounting major Matt Lusty of Mineola will present the research paper titled “A Teaching Case Illustrating Cost-Volume-Profit Relationships in an International Setting” at the 2010 Meeting of the American Accounting Association – the Southwest Region.
They will present “Analyzing the Risks and Benefits of Moving Production Overseas” at the 2010 Meeting of the Southwest Decision Sciences Institute.
“Both papers are teaching cases using a real company as the basis,” said Dr. Gus Gordon, UT Tyler associate professor of accounting. “The AAA paper is focused on calculating the breakeven point in an unusual situation, as well as some performance evaluation issues. The DSI paper looks at the factors to consider when locating a manufacturing plant overseas.”
Nelson and Lusty will graduate in 2011.
