Onel Presents Research at International Conferences, Named DSEF Fellow
Naz Onel, assistant professor of Business Studies, presented her research, “Explaining Sustainable Consumption: A Theoretical and Empirical Analysis” in May at the 2019 Academy of Marketing Science (AMS) Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. While at the conference, Onel also chaired the session, “Uncertainty and Morality in the Global Marketplace.”
"AMS is one of the top marketing conferences in the world that features refereed paper sessions, research-in-progress sessions, panels, and workshops,” Onel said. “My paper was chosen after a double-blind peer-review process and it was an honor to present it in one of the most sustainable cities in the world, Vancouver."
Onel also presented her research,“Transforming Business Schools: Education for Environmental Sustainability,” (pictured) at the Future of Education International Conference, June 27-28, in Florence, Italy. This conference brought together academics, researchers, practitioners and project managers from all over the world to share findings, expertise and experience about innovative teaching and learning methodologies, through oral presentations and poster sessions. “Our session on Curriculum Development was engaging and informative. I met with a number of scholars from all around the world and had stimulating discussions on evolving practices in higher education,” Onel said. “I strongly believe that through research and teaching associated with sustainability, higher education can be redesigned with deliberate institutional evolution and large-scale academic reorganization that will make it possible to tackle some of the most intractable challenges of our times. I am proud to be a part of this important evolution and will continue to passionately work on implementing sustainability into Stockton’s business education.”
In July, Onel was named as one of the DSEF (Direct Selling Education Foundation) Fellows, (pictured right).
"It is an honor to be listed as one of the DSEF Fellows next to many distinguished scholars. I am given a three-year opportunity to work with the Foundation and industry executives to gain deeper insights into different aspects of direct selling business model and related consumer, ethical, and entrepreneurship practices," concluded Onel.
