Lisa Andrus, dean of business and hospitality at Penn College and chair of the conference, presented “Entrepreneurial Student Projects: What are we teaching our students?”

Andrus’s paper examines business school curricula and the specialized projects required of students to extend learning beyond the classroom, and whether those projects – and the extra work involved for students – are beneficial in comparison with the characteristics employers look for in business school graduates. She used a specific example of students in an advanced entrepreneurial business course who volunteered to start up a business on the college campus as their final project.

Faculty members Chip D. Baumgardner, associate professor of business administration: management, and Steven J. Moff, professor of business administration: management and marketing, presented a paper titled “Innovations in the Brewing Science Program,” which they co-wrote with Timothy L. Yarrington, instructor of brewing and fermentation science.

Their paper explores models used to build brewing science curricula and explains one such model, which relies on ideas from an established brewmaster, course material from an external entity and concepts gained from a program in innovation, and analyzes how all three components can be effective in a dynamic brewing science education program.

The conference was held in Kona, Hawaii, Nov. 15-18. All accepted papers were double-blind reviewed and are set to be published in the refereed conference proceedings. In addition, the conference’s best papers – including those presented by Penn College employees – are published in the Journal of Business Leadership, the official journal of the American National Business Hall of Fame.

Andrus holds doctorate, master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Baumgardner holds a doctorate from George Mason University, master’s degrees from Penn State and Shippensburg universities, and a bachelor’s degree from Penn State.

Moff holds a juris doctor from the Western New England College School of Law, a Master of Business Administration from University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business and a bachelor’s degree from St. Vincent College.

Yarrington is a graduate of the Master Brewer’s program at University of California, Davis, and holds a bachelor’s degree from Penn State.
