Call for Posters and Oral Presentations

The inaugural Business Student Research Showcase is scheduled for Thursday, April 20, 2017 in the Harborside 2 Skyline Room. Students are requested to submit research projects, presentations from a class project and/or individual capstone projects. Members of the NJCU community, alumni, friends, and the public are invited to attend.

The showcase will celebrate the achievements of business students by highlighting the creativity of students engaged in research in their business courses, independent studies, and extra-curricular activities.

Best Presentation Award for Undergraduate Students

The competition will consist of two separate categories: a poster presentation category and an oral presentation category. The grand prize winners in both the poster presentation and oral presentations will each receive a cash award of $200.00, with 3 runners-up in each category receiving a lesser amount. Winners of the poster and presentation competition will be announced during the showcase. The presentations could be either a co-authored group presentation or a sole-authored (individual) presentation. Participants are permitted to compete in both categories, by submitting both 1 poster entry and making 1 oral presentation, if desired.

Awards for best presentation:

  • Best Oral Presentation: Grand Prize Winner (best presentation), and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place runners-up
  • Poster Presentation: Grand Prize Winner (best presentation), and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place runners-up


Benefits to Students Who Participate

Students will benefit from this showcase by gaining experience in public communication and interacting with the invited guests, judges, and many members and friends of the NJCU community.  This will be a great networking opportunity! Additionally, participants will receive public recognition of their efforts, with the possibility that some students may wish to include successful entries as an item on their employment resume.
