Two faculty members within The University of Texas at Tyler Department of Management and Marketing were recognized for their outstanding collaboration in international business and entrepreneurship, Dr. Harold Doty, College of Business and Technology dean, announced.
Dr. Marilyn Young, professor of management, and Dr. Isaura Flores, assistant professor of management, received the 2011 Global Business Development Institute’s Best Paper Award.
Their international research began when they analyzed the UT Tyler Hispanic Business Center to determine the specific needs for Hispanic entrepreneurs. They became interested in a variety of areas, including virtual entrepreneurship, transnational entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship among Hispanic women and global teams. They also validated an organizational commitment scale to be used in Mexico.
Further joint contributions may be found in such publications as the Journal of Business and Entrepreneurship, Midwestern Business and Economic Review, and International Journal of Business Competition and Growth, among others.
Both also apply their respective expertise and provide real-world experiences in the classroom by having their students conduct business plans for various organizations.
Young holds a Ph.D. in business administration from the University of Arkansas. Flores holds a Ph.D. in management from the University of Houston/Monterrey Institute of Technology.
