A paper that got its start as part of an undergraduate research project at Meredith is being published in an academic journal.
“Raleigh-Cary: Best Metro for Women Entrepreneurs?” by Meredith student Caitlin Dillon and Associate Professor of Business Tony Bledsoe, has been accepted by the “Journal of Business & Economics Research.”
The paper is a gender-specific investigation into what makes a certain city the best place for women entrepreneurs. The abstract describes the paper as “an account of an undergraduate student’s research attempt to verify best place claims for women starting a business. It includes obstacles and challenges she faced in developing a strategy for completing the research work.”
Dillon, a senior majoring in business administration and Spanish, will present her research as part of Meredith’s Celebrating Student Achievement Day on April 23.
