UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School faculty members Isaac Dinner and Tarun Kushawa and Atul Nerkar and Kevin Micelli were awarded a UNC CIBER mini grant in this fall’s competition.
Dinner and Kushawa, both in the marketing area, will study the “Impact of Firm Misgivings on Stock Market Reaction” in a cross-country investigation. Nerkar and Micelli from the Strategy and Entrepreneurship Area chose the project title “The Fast and the Rechargeable” for their research on country-level differences in technological development of hybrid-electric vehicles beginning by investments in R&D and leading to patenting in the United States by global firms. Their study will specially focus on China.
UNC CIBER mini-grants support scholarly research, programming for business and policy communities, and development of course materials related to international business issues and in accordance with the Center’s regional and thematic emphases.
