The Haworth College of Business is focused on applied research that has practical applications. This research makes a clear and important impact on the business world—and on the world in general. From the economy, to technology, to supply chains, to the food industry, to e-commerce and more, our faculty collaborate on research that leads the way in innovation and application. We keep our research relevant to solve real-world issues. Many of our faculty publish their research in top journals.

  • Research and teaching are inseparable. Through research, we remain current in our fields, even advance our fields, and bring that knowledge back to the business classroom.
