Knowledge without Boundaries - Bootcamp (March 15-17, 2018)

The Center for Global Business and Information Technology Research and Center for Management and Entrepreneurship are hosting a bootcamp as a parallel event with Southern Regional Science Association Conference on March 15-17.  The bootcamp is a beta for a new type of Knowledge without Boundaries event.  The bootcamp leaders saw an opportunity to leverage the professional conference attendance with supplemental research development opportunities and experiences for UOPX affiliates in the Philly area.  Campus leaders, SAS Research Chairs and Fellows, and SAS faculty are providing a bootcamp space to share their research and skill sets.
