The event started in 2016 when the chair of the accounting department, Barbara S. Rowell, suggested that the Brown School of Business initiate a poster session with faculty and students collaborating on the event. Last year’s poster session included students in a variety of majors including accounting, digital marketing, information systems and legal studies, among others.

This year’s event will include 44 posters from eight different classes ranging from marketing to accounting, auditing, computer information systems and entrepreneurship. With Rowell directing the event along with other faculty and staff, the showcase gives students an opportunity to research a project, create a poster and present their findings in a public and formal setting.

Poster sessions give students the ability to research real world issues and present the information found to a group of faculty, staff and fellow students. This allows the students presenting to obtain an insightful real life experience that can aid them in future job opportunities.
