MCOB Breaks College Summer Research Record
Posted on May 28, 2021 by MCOB Outreach
The Mitchell College of Business is pleased to announce that five undergraduate students have been accepted into the University of South Alabama’s 2021 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF). This program is designed to give students a hands-on learning experience and exposure to basic research, scholarly and creative activities. This year, the Mitchell College of Business submitted the most applicants to-date with an outstanding 100% acceptance rate. Of the five students accepted into the program, each academic department within the college is being represented: Marketing and Quantitative Methods, Management, Accounting, and Economics, Finance, and Real Estate.
Student fellows must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program with a 3.0 minimum GPA, working 20 hours per week over the course of the 10-week program. Research findings will be presented at the Undergraduate Research Symposium on October 28th, 2021. Each fellow will be guided through the program by a faculty mentor.
The College would like to congratulate this year’s MCOB SURF recipient.
