SCRANTON, PA-September 9, 2008

Two graduate business students from Marywood University's Insalaco College of Creative Arts and Management were selected to present the Feasibility Study of Offering Online Hybrid Courses to Graduate Students at the 31st Annual Meeting of the Northeastern Association of Business, Economics and Technology at State College, set for October 30.

Laura Boyarsky, Justus, and Jennifer Phillips, Dickson City, recently completed a research assignment in their Graduate Business Research Methods class, taught by Charles Lipinski, Ph.D., Marywood University. Their report contains a feasibility study about offering online hybrid business courses to graduate students, as well as research conducted in and around Northeast Pennsylvania. The report's analysis details those colleges and universities currently offering online hybrid courses, the advantages and disadvantages of offering these courses, a proposed course design, a complete portrayal/narrative of a survey conducted among professionals and other detailed interview findings.   

For the past 30 years, the Northeastern Association of Business, Economics, and Technology (NABET) has selected scholarly papers from small colleges and universities throughout Pennsylvania and nearby states. Graduate students are asked to present new research and discuss a variety of current issues. Papers presented at the meeting will be eligible for publication in the conference proceedings. Publication in the Journal of the Northeastern Association of Business, Economics and Technology (formerly the Pennsylvania Journal of Business and Economics) is also possible after peer review.
