January 4, 2023

The Hankamer School of Business (HSB) at Baylor University will launch a new podcast to promote top-tier research conducted by Hankamer faculty and students.

The podcast, “Innovative Business,” will feature Business School faculty and students discussing their research on a foundational level. “Innovative Business” will provide listeners with insights and thought leadership about a variety of business topics, Sandeep Mazumder, the William E. Crenshaw Endowed Dean of the Business School, said.

“HSB faculty and students are consistently producing purposeful research that impacts the world around us,” Mazumder said. “I am excited for audiences to hear more about the high-quality business research that helps contribute to Baylor’s R1 Research status.”

Co-hosted by Bo Mello, marketing specialist, and Justin Walker, publications manager, “Innovative Business” will expand on research covered in the Innovative Business at Baylor sections of award-winning Baylor Business Review magazine.

“With research covering a wide variety of business topics such as consumer behavior, employee responses to safety enforcement and reviews of governing board effectiveness, our researchers are contributing to the enrichment of our world through first-rate studies,” Mitch Neubert, senior associate dean of Research and Development, said. “The ‘Innovative Business’ podcast will join the likes of the Baylor Business Review magazine and the HSB website in sharing the incredible work our faculty and students are doing.”

The first episode premieres Wednesday, Jan. 18., featuring research on consumer behavior when ordering groceries for delivery, conducted by Assistant Professor of Marketing Claudio Alvarez. Additional episodes will be released on a monthly schedule, skipping June and July.
