February 5, 2020 - Brown Bag Research Series

The Digital Continuum: Digital Products and Services Are Different

Presented by Dr. Scott Roberts

Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020 | Noon

Student Engagement Center, Room 2050

Join the H-E-B School of Business and Administration for this installment of the Brown Bag Research Series.

More on the topic: This paper proposes a new framework for categorizing digital offerings. Notions of ownership, access and control are explored. A large gap in textbooks regarding what digital products are and how they are presented was identified nearly a decade ago and this work is one of the results of an ongoing inquiry into that area of thinking. (Micken, Kathleen S., Roberts, Scott D. & Oliver, Jason D.)

March 2, 2020 - Brown Bag Research Series

The Association Between Strategic Group Membership and Hospital Financial Performance

Presented by Dr. Akbar Ghiasi

Monday, March 2, 2020 | Noon

Student Engagement Center, Room 2041

Join the H-E-B School of Business and Administration for this installment of the Brown Bag Research Series.

More on the topic: This research seeks to identify the strategic group structure of the hospital industry and to examine the effect of strategic group membership on hospital financial performance. Our results suggested that hospitals with hybrid strategy outperform hospitals with cost-leadership strategy and stuck-in-the-middle. Absence of a coherent strategy (i.e. stuck-in-the-middle) is likely to lead to poor performance.

April 3, 2020 - Pitch Competition

Pitch Competition, hosted by the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization

Friday, April 3, 2020 | Noon

Online via Zoom

The Pitch Competition is an opportunity for students to pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges. It is a precursor to the Startup Challenge in the fall and a good first step toward formulating a competing business model. The 2020 Pitch Competition will be held via Zoom video conference due to the university's response to COVID-19.

The competition will feature four teams from the UIW main campus in San Antonio and one team from the UIW Bajio campus in Mexco. The first and second place teams will receive prizes of $500 and $300 respectively. 

For questions about the Pitch Competition, please contact Dr. Segun Oyedele at oyedele@uiwtx.edu.
