Before the spring semester gets too busy, I wanted to take a look back at what we accomplished in 2023. It was another outstanding year for the College as a whole and our faculty as well.  

This fall I sent out a short survey to gauge the impact of our research. Thanks to the many faculty members who participated. 

We continued to excel in 2023, in terms of productivity and impact. Among the 79 faculty who participated in the survey, they reported 180 papers that were accepted or published in Terry’s top journals, 62 of which were with current or former Terry doctoral students. As always, your research continues to build the reputation of the College and University of Georgia as leaders in high-quality, impactful research.

The survey also revealed that 16 Terry faculty currently serve as editors or associate editors at top journals (with many having served past terms) and that our faculty received multiple research awards in the past year.

Below are links to several selected articles provided by faculty. Please have a look at your leisure.

In closing, I’d like to say thank you again and tell you all how much I appreciate all you do for Terry College. 

Michael D. Pfarrer, Ph.D.
Associate Dean and Terry Distinguished Chair of Business Administration
