Professor Elizabeth Wark, Ph.D., of the Business Administration and Economics Department, received the Outstanding College Partner Award from Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts (JA) on behalf of Worcester State University. The Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts works to prepare and inspire young people to succeed in the global economy by educating students in entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy through hands-on programs.
Wark received this award for developing a class where students analyze survey data from the JA and use that analysis to create formal consulting reports. These reports are used for promotional ideas and grant proposals. Students in Wark’s course Quantitative Analysis and Research Methods have been recognized by the Binienda Center for their service work that they have completed through their JA data projects.
Currently, all students in the Master’s of Science in Management program are required to take this course
