When the augmented reality (AR) game Pokémon Go made its debut in 2016, it quickly became the most popular mobile game in U.S. history with more than 20 million active users daily. It’s now at the top of the menu in an industry that last year generated more than $1 billion in revenues. According to research from Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management, however, tech companies aren’t the only businesses getting a taste of the profits.
Purdue’s recently restructured Weekend MBA program has boosted master’s degree enrollment, earned awards for a veteran Krannert Prof. Charlene Sullivan and two instructional designers from ITaP, and drawn accolades from faculty including Brian Chupp. But the real winners behind the innovations in teaching and learning technologies are students.
Partners in Progress
Pat Brown has been concerned about the economic future of his hometown, a small city with about 330 residents in northeast Indiana. Krannert Dean David Hummels recommended he reach out to faculty member Chad Allred, whose marketing students had already found success helping preserve the economy of a village of woodcarving artisans in Baan Tawai, Thailand.
Addressing the gender gap in corporate leadership, research coauthored by Krannert finance professor Mara Faccio breaks new ground by using data from European-based companies that finds female CEOs tend to make less risky choices than their male counterparts.
