  •  Honors for Faculty Research

    Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2011 10:27 AM

    Yongtae Kim (ACTG) and Meir Statman (FNCE) received Honorable Mention during the 2011 Moskowitz Prize for Socially Responsible Investing award announcement on October 3. SCU has now three faculty members whose work has earned recognition by the international group over the 15 years in which the Prize has been awarded, one of the few business schools with multiple winners on campus.

    The 2011 paper by Kim and Statman, “Do Corporations Invest Enough in Environmental Responsibility?” follows back-to-back Moskowitz Prize awards to SCU faculty members Hoje Jo in 2009 and Statman in 2008. Statman also received an additional honorable mention in 2005.

    The Moskowitz Prize is the only global award recognizing quantitative research in socially responsible investing (SRI). Papers are reviewed by an expert panel of judges from both academic and industry circles, using criteria such as practical significance to practitioners of SRI, rigor of quantitative methods, and novelty of results. The Prize is announced at the “SRI in the Rockies” conference each fall. Learn more about the Moskowitz Prize here

  •  LSB Green Case Team is National Champion

    Friday, Jan. 28, 2011 3:45 PM

    Four accounting juniors took first place in KPMG's recent national "Living Green" case competition, beating out eight teams from other schools across the U.S. including Fordham University and UC Berkeley.

    Katelyn Daley, Rebecca Tien, Shannon Wang and Linda Young--all officers in the student-led Accounting Association--developed their project to improve environmental and sustainability programs at Santa Clara. Their idea was to create a "Bronco Urban Garden Day of Awareness."

    The Bronco Urban Garden (BUG) is a partnership between SCU's Environmental Studies Institute and the Silicon Valley HealthCorps. BUG also oversees the Forge Garden, SCU's half-acre education and community garden on the corner of Benton and Sherman streets. Read more about The Forge here >>

    The team won $1,000 to implement the Day of Awareness, which the women say will likely be held in Spring Quarter.

    This is the second year KMPG has sponsored the "Living Green" case competition, designed to address issues raised by the "College Sustainability Report Card" from the Sustainable Endowments Insitutute.
