Carey Business School launches business research magazine

The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School has unveiled Changing Business magazine, a new twice-yearly publication showcasing research projects by members of the school's full-time faculty.

The magazine is available in print and also can be read online at

Bernard T. Ferrari, dean of the school, says, "The projects featured in this issue of Changing Business, and in the issues to come, represent the type of research to which we aspire at Carey, with the goal of making business more efficient and more effective while keeping humanity in mind. Our scholars are squarely in the tradition of Johns Hopkins, a tradition of creating knowledge that benefits society."

The four projects featured in the first issue of Changing Business demonstrate what Ferrari calls "the relevant, practical, translatable research" being done by Carey School faculty. Mario Macis looks at the use of economic incentives to attract much-needed blood donations. Brian Gunia examines the advantages of making the first offer in negotiations. Ozge Sahin considers methods for improving the ticket-resale industry. And Adam Seth Litwin and Phillip Phan explore entrepreneurship's impact on job creation. Also included is a section of brief items about research work by other Carey faculty members, along with an article on the first group of Dean's Research Scholars—five Global MBA students introduced to the rigors of research work.
