UNCW/CSB Alumni To Launch New Product That Promotes Personal Safety

Brio Coaster (photo: New Potato Technologies)May 26: New Potato Technologies will be launching their latest product, the Brio Coaster, to the Wilmington community in June. Worked on by a team including four UNCW alumni (Chris Sumner, James Smith, Alan Linz and Amanda Harman) and two Cameron School of Business alumnae (Kellie McLiverty and Corinne Conto, IMBA), this 'smart' coaster is designed to alert you via your phone if someone tampers with your drink while you're away from it.

Besides keeping your beverage safe, the coaster and app are designed to get people interacting with each other by allowing you to rate local venues and even play games. "We want people to go out and have fun, but be safe about what they’re doing," McLiverty said. "So that they’re not just leaving their drinks with a stranger."

Participants in the 2017 Accounting and Business Law Golf OutingMay 2: On April 21, the Accountancy and Business Law Department’s annual golf outing was held at Magnolia Greens Golf Course in Leland, NC. An assortment of faculty, students (both graduate and undergraduate), and accounting professionals and recruiters participated.

This annual event provides a great opportunity for networking, particularly for students who do not yet have jobs secured but also for students who are looking to get to know more professionals from their hiring company. In addition, the outing provides students with an introduction to the role of golf in the business environment.

This year’s event had 53 total participants, plus another dozen or so individuals who came out for lunch and networking. Dr. Tom Downen, assistant professor of accounting, arranged the outing this year. "The weather was beautiful, and everyone seemed to enjoy the day; and, for the first time in three years...Dr. Mautz’s team did NOT win!" To view photos of the event, visit our Facebook album.

ISOM Faculty Research Featured in APICS Magazine

APICS logoMarch 20: APICS, the premier professional association for supply chain management, and UNCW's Cameron School of Business interviewed a random sample of 30,000 industry professionals around the globe to create a joint report providing year-to-year comparisons; trend analysis; and a 12-month outlook on hiring, layoffs, job function, job title, and salary compensation for the Operations Management profession.

ISOM Faculty Dr. Drew Rosen, Dr. Judith Gebauer and Dr. Tom Janicki all contributed to the report, which found the job market for operations management professionals has been steadily improving since the first salary and employment report was released in 2009. Forty-one percent of survey respondents anticipate hiring within the next 12 months, up from 38 percent of survey respondents in the 2014 project. This growth in anticipated hiring pairs with a 3 percent decline in anticipated layoffs, resulting in a significant 31 percent projected net gain for operations management industry employment in 2017.
