Over the past year, I have been working with coauthors on research in the area of internal auditing and COVID-19.  Our first article, “Downsizing Internal Audit: Saving Costs or Sacrificing Future Performance” was published in the May/June 2020 issue of Internal Auditing and the second article, “The 2020/COVID-19 Environment and Internal Audit” is forthcoming in the July/August issue of Internal Auditing. In this blog, I discuss some of the main points of these articles, but feel free to refer to the original articles for a more detailed discussion of these topics.

As a military-affiliated student, Hannah Schield ’19 has lived in three states and attended four colleges over the past five years in her pursuit to obtain a degree. Her hard work will come to fruition when Schield receives her business administration degree with a concentration in supply chain management from the Cameron School of Business.
 
"Once the requirements of my degree are completed, what ultimately matters are not the courses listed on my transcript, but the sensibilities and habits of mind that I bring to my work, friends, family, and indeed, the rest of my life,” said Schield.
According to Schield, who is CSB’s “Outstanding Graduate” for the school of business and within the supply chain program, the knowledge she has gained during her studies brings immense value to organizations.

Grateful for Business Community Connections

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Feb 22, 2019 10:23:00 AM

By Robert Burrus, Dean of the Cameron School of Business (this post originally appeared on WilmingtonBiz.com on February 19, 2019).

The fall of 2018 was both devastating and challenging for the city of Wilmington and the surrounding areas. However, all sectors of the Cape Fear community proved resilient in getting our economy back up and running.  As well, our students, faculty and staff returned to campus and began to piece together the remainder of a semester marked by the loss of almost a month of class days and significant campus damage. I want to commend all of you in our community for your great ability to work together!

Featured Alumna: Corinne Walker, International MBA '15

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Feb 15, 2019 11:15:00 AM

It’s hard to imagine where you might end up after college because the constant classes and homework often make us feel like we’ll be here forever. Though you might not see it now, everything you’re doing in college at this moment is shaping you as a professional in the future. International MBA grad, Corinne Walker, is a great example of this, and we interviewed her to gain some insight on her college and career journey. Walker has a B.S. in marketing and her IMBA concentration was also in marketing. She spent time studying in Valencia, Spain, and now works as a marketing professional at a company called Geo Owl.
