The Journal of Management and Innovation stems out of an idea from Dr. Tom Coughlan in 2013, and the ground work laid out by his MBAA 816 class in the winter of 2013 / 2014. The mission of the Journal is to serve both Mercy College and the business community – including students, academics, business practitioners, and organizations of all shapes and sizes. We do this by providing an analysis of current issues, ideas, and problems related to business management and innovation. Our focus is to discuss actionable ideas that can improve the lives, experiences, and profits of our readers.
The primary goals for the Journal include:
- Provide a platform to showcase the work of our students.
- Provide a forum forum for our faculty to collaborate and publish
- Provide a point of connection for business leaders to participate in both the development of content and networking with the Mercy Community
- Provide a point connection for faculty from other institutions to participate in scholarship with the Mercy Community
In addition to the primary focus, we believe our journal creates value in the following ways:
- Development of a platform that creates idea flow and collaboration associated with the Mercy College School of Business
- Short format content focused on actionable ideas - delivered in a format that is accessible to both academics and practitioners (articles will be between 1,500 and 3,000 words)
- Career and scholarship opportunity for students, faculty, practitioners, and extended community members
- Communicates in a small way some of the great things happening in the Mercy Community
